The PHI fixes the examination dates and prepares the exam. It lasts 3 hours and must be taken in writing.

NAPHN will send the examination documents to the PHI after the first correction. After a second marking by the PHI, we will issue the certificate and send it to successful participants together with the respective seal in digital form via e-mail.

Further information can be found in the examination regulations. The content-related requirements for the examination can be found in the catalogue of learning targets.

A Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) is required to plan and optimize Passive House buildings. To register for the exam, you will therefore need a valid PHPP license, that is to say to acquire a PHPP.
