Passive House Training Overview

Join the Passive House Education Pathway

The Passive House training overview demonstrates that no matter your background, depending on how you work with buildings, there are courses appropriate for your needs. So, while architects, engineers, and consultants are obvious candidates, these courses are meant for contractors, project managers, and a wide variety of industry stakeholders – from developers and real estate professionals to policymakers and regulators. Passive House education is a four-part process, that builds on the formal course work, to include the apprenticeship education that comes with the building certification process.

For over 26 years the Passive House Standard has been the state-of-the-art scientific foundation of high-performance and net-zero buildings, around the world.  Training qualified professionals is an essential prerequisite for successful Passive House construction.
