The Passive House Design and Construction Course is aimed at all current and aspiring building industry professionals who are motivated to learn how to build to the world’s most advanced and energy efficient construction standard.
This foundation course is offered in three modules:
Part A: Passive House Principles
Part B: Energy Modeling with PHPP
Part C: Online Exam Prep Module (self-paced)
Each module can be taken separately, or they can be taken together in a combination that meets your needs. If you intend to write the Certified Passive House Designer / Consultant Exam we strongly recommend you take Parts A, B, and C. You may also choose to take the 2 day in-class Exam Prep Course if it is offered in your region.
Part B (3 days in class): April 20, 21, 22
Part B is meant to enable you to take on your first Passive House project. This segment of the course offers a step by step guide to using Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) to design to the Passive House standard. Participants will model a sample project in PHPP. It is recommended you take Part B if you intend to write the Certified Passive House Designer / Consultant exam as some PHPP competency may be tested and examinees are required to supply a valid PHPP registration number.
Intended Audience: All those that will be directly involved in the design and construction of Passive House projects.
If you wish to take Part B we recommend you purchase the PHPP software prior to attending the course. The PHPP manual is provided with the purchase of the software. PHPP can be purchased on our website here.
