NAPHN LIVE is a free educational platform that offers a range of Passive House experts presenting on a wide range of Passive House topics. If the subject matter qualifies, the presentations offer AIA and PHI continuing education credits to attendees. The events are hosted by one of the NAPHN regional chapters, at noontime in their time zone, and can showcase topics and projects of interest to that chapter.
