For over 10 years the Passive House (Passivhaus) Standards have been adopted for many building types – both new build and renovations – and interest is increasing worldwide. The supply chain has matured and a wide range of Passive House Standard products are available.
Delivered by the University of Strathclyde Energy Systems Research Unit, the BRE Centre of Excellence in Energy Utilisation in partnership with the BRE Academy, the qualification will provide you with all the skills necessary to successfully design and deliver buildings to the Passive House Standard.
You will be required to undertake self-study of several online modules (video material plus exercises – approx. 15 hours) prior to attending the one week’s intensive classroom training. It is important to complete this work to improve your understanding of Passive House.
