Training Financial Incentives
Passive House training changes everything. You simply can’t look at a building the same way again. Unlocked is a world of design and construction decisions that directly raise the building performance outcomes. From single-family homes to apartment buildings, schools, and every other building type conceivable, building construction and renovation are approached afresh.
There are places where this is appreciated and programs have been set up to invest in professional Passive House training. The investments can be very significant to professional recipients. Here is what we hope will be a growing list.
The NAPHN Education Fellowship
To help increase Black architect and engineer participation in the Passive House sector, NAPHN has established the NAPHN Passive House Education Fellowship. NAPHN invites all Black architects and engineers who have a commitment to sustainable building to apply and participate. Visit the website page here and download the program overview sheet here.
