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 (PHI).

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 30 hours in videos and quizzes plus 4-6 hours for a PHPP project) prior to attending the one week’s intensive virtual 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. An outline of these online modules is given here.  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.)
