Our Educators’ Training

ACNFP sets the standard for the training and accreditation of educators in clinical and non-clinical work:

Natural Family Planning (NFP) Educators

In a private and confidential centre, NFP Educators instruct couples on how to avoid or achieve a pregnancy naturally. NFP Educators undertake ACNFP reaccreditation every two years. Couples can be assured that they will receive quality instruction in the latest fertility research and instruction techniques.

Family Life Education (FLE) Educators

FLE Educators present non-clinical programs to community groups. FLE educators undertake ACNFP reaccreditation every two years. Community groups can be assured that they will receive quality programs in the latest in Fertility & Sexuality research and group-work techniques.
