AIM From the outside, Passive House buildings are no different from conventional buildings, because the term “Passive House” refers to a standard and not a certain construction method. Good planning and careful implementation of details are decisive factors in the construction of Passive House buildings, the world’s leading standard in low energy, sustainable construction. The aim of this training for the ”Certified Passive House Tradesperson” certificate is to convey an overall impression of the interdisciplinary Passive House concept to tradesmen involved in the construction industry.
