As a FEMM Teacher, you will be equipped to teach women in your community and online. FEMM does not commit to providing clients to our teachers, however, after certification you will be added to FEMM’s Teacher Directory and clients may be able to search your profile.

Some teachers set up their own health/fertility coaching practice, others work jointly with clinics or health centers to provide the education there, and some work solely in NFP circles.


FEMM Teacher Training Courses are only offered in English at this time.
While the language barrier could be a concern, we have participation from many for whom English is a second language.

All quizzes, course work, practice teaching reports, and chart assessments have to be completed in English. At this time we are only able to provide Spanish language materials for teachers to use with their clients but the course certification itself is entirely in English.


As a FEMM Teacher you will be trained to identify hormonal imbalances in the cycle, such as noting estrogen imbalances or low progesterone, however, since layperson’s are not equipped to make medical diagnosis’ we do not train our FEMM Teachers to identify or diagnose specific reproductive disorders such as PCOS or endometriosis. Specific reproductive disorders and cycle patterns is something that is covered in the Medical Management Training course. FEMM teachers are equipped to work with clients to identify abnormalities in their cycle, and refer to trained FEMM medical providers.


FEMM and teenFEMM Teacher Certification

If you’re looking to teach women and teens right away, then our online certification course is for you. 

This course examines the incredible interplay of hormones and their effect on every system and organ in a woman’s body, the breakthrough science that informs FEMM education and our medical approach, a review of essential peer-reviewed science pertinent to women’s health, and a clear understanding of the concept that ovulation is a sign of health. We also provide content you can use to teach women, which leverages science with feature tips and insights. The teenFEMM course builds on the FEMM teacher content, and is tailored specifically to teens. It focuses on the physical and emotional changes happening in teens, and encourages them to adopt healthy lifestyle and relationship goals and behaviors.

Cervical Mucus: Understanding and Explaining this Critical Biomarker

“The FEMM teacher training course was exactly what I was looking for to expand my understanding of the female reproductive system and cycle charting. I have already seen how exciting it is to pass this knowledge to other people: whether I'm working with teenage girls in rural villages (where periods are considered taboo) or engaged couples who want to learn about natural family planning with confidence.”
