Teacher Training Workshops

Thank you for your interest in becoming an Accredited to teach the authentic Billings Ovulation Method®. Billings is very simple, yet is validated by more scientific research than any other method of natural fertility management available today.

Our Accredited Teachers empower individuals and couples to discover real freedom through education in the design of their bodies.

These workshops are opportunities for live training and group discussion.  Personal study, lived experience, and mentoring are also key components of teacher training after the workshops.
