Natural Family Planning is best learned in person with an instructor for a number of reasons, but that is not always possible. If you need online instruction, choosing a live online class is recommended because it is the closest thing to a regular class. Self-paced online learning has the least instructor interaction and open-ended time frames to complete the course; it is a last option and for those who are highly organized self- learners.
Ask for a method class when you contact the organizations if you wish to receive a certificate of completion for learning NFP. Some offer an Introduction which is an overview, but not NFP instruction.
