Whether you are a construction specialist or simply curious, understand the Passive House principles at your own pace, whenever and wherever you want. By taking this course you can start to prepare for the Certified Passive House Designer exam or better follow along a PHPP/designPH workshop. Much of the course material is based on a cool-temperate climate, but international examples are included as those principles can be adapted to every climate.


Want to give it a try?


There are ten topics: each one is divided into sub-units, including a video presentation followed by further material and a quiz (a Moodle account is required for quiz completion). Use our teaser to go through the following subunits for free:
