Passive House Tradesperson Course (CPHT)

Learn how to build a Passive House building! Gain a good understanding of the interactions and interdependency of building components in a Passive House project. This course also enables you to assess the energy efficiency of any planning modifications and to solve problems with the designers involved in construction due to a similar knowledge base.

Course audience and requirements:
These modules are primarily aimed at trades people, but other building professionals may join as well, to get familiar with the realities of the building site. You need to have some basic trades people training.

PHPP Energy Modeling Training | On-Demand

PHPP energy balance calculations are the heart of Passive House design tools, giving you command of the performance outcomes of your design decisions, as you pursue architectural excellence. REGISTER

Certificate renewal

There are two methods for Designers/Consultants, as well as Tradespeople, to renew their certificates. One method is by supplying building documentation for a certified Passive House, EnerPHit retrofit or PHI Low Energy Building project, where full responsibility for the building design and the project planning using PHPP has been exercised by the applicant. The other method is through continuous education activities and the accrual of Credit Points (CP). There are many opportunities to participate in continuing educational events, such as relevant courses, webinars, events or engagement in Passive House teaching activities.
