Overview

This 5-day training course helps learners to achieve the Certified European Passive House qualification.  The course prepares you for the Passive House exam which is set by the Passive House Institute.

It is delivered by a certified trainer from the University of Strathclyde Energy Systems Research Unit (the BRE Centre of Excellence in Energy Utilisation) in partnership with the BRE Academy. The course provides you with the knowledge and skills needed to pass the Passive House exam as well as giving you a head-start for contributing to the design of residential Passive House projects.

You are required to undertake self-study of several online modules (video material plus exercises – approximately 26 hours in videos and quizzes plus 3-6 hours for a PHPP project) prior to attending the one week’s intensive classroom training. It is important to complete this work to improve your understanding of Passive House and to maximise your benefit from the classroom training. You will also undertake mock exams to gauge your progress

Please note: As part of this training course you are required to purchase the PHPP 9 (2015) software. This can be purchased from https://www.aecb.net/product/passive-house-planning-package/ at a cost of £160 + VAT for non-members and is required for the online modules. (Please allow 7 working days for delivery of manual and disc.)

The course includes detailed topics covering:

  • Passive House facade details
  • Construction heat bridges
  • Passive House windows
  • Air-tightness and Blower Door Test (demonstration)
  • Thermography (demonstration)
  • Ventilation & MVHR (design, commissioning and testing)
  • Summer comfort
  • Utilisation of residual heat
  • Quality Assurance during planning, on site and commissioning
  • Passive House Planning Package (PHPP)

There is also the opportunity to engage with BRE experts.

The course cost includes your Passive House examination fee. The exam is taken a few weeks after the training course to give time for learners to consolidate their learning. If an exam retake is required, then an additional fee is charged.
