Design and build high per­form­ance build­ings!

Pass­ive House build­ings are en­ergy ef­fi­cient build­ings that provide users with high levels of com­fort and ex­cel­lent air qual­ity around the clock. They may not look any dif­fer­ent from oth­er build­ings, but good plan­ning as well as care­ful ex­e­cu­tion of the de­tails is es­sen­tial in the con­struc­tion of such pro­jects. This en­sures that the high re­quire­ments for the build­ing en­vel­ope and tech­no­logy can be met. As a res­ult, build­ing pro­fes­sion­als need ad­di­tion­al ex­pert­ise which can be ac­quired and sub­stan­ti­ated with Pass­ive House courses.

The Pass­ive House In­sti­tu­te has de­ve­loped a flex­ible sys­tem to pro­mote "lifelong learn­ing" and the gradu­al ac­quis­i­tion of Pass­ive House know­ledge: Once you have ac­quired a main Pass­ive House Trades­per­son, Con­sult­ant or De­sign­er cer­ti­fic­ate, you can earn ad­di­tion­al seals by gain­ing ex­pert­ise in a spe­cif­ic top­ic. This sys­tem also takes the fur­ther edu­ca­tion of oth­er pro­fes­sion­al groups in­to ac­count, as well as act­iv­it­ies that are im­port­ant for the con­struc­tion of Pass­ive House build­ings.
