Be­come an ac­cred­ited Pass­ive House Build­ing Cer­ti­fi­er

Build­ing cer­ti­fic­a­tion is an es­sen­tial part of the qual­ity as­sur­ance pro­cess. To ad­dress the grow­ing amount of re­quests for Pass­ive House and En­erPHit cer­ti­fic­a­tion, the Pass­ive House In­sti­tu­te has de­ve­loped a concept to train more build­ing cer­ti­fi­ers.



  • In-depth Pass­ive House ex­per­i­en­ce (sev­er­al cer­ti­fied Pass­ive House / En­erPHit pro­jects) is a must
  • Ex­pert­ise in the PHPP, as this is used to ev­al­u­ate the build­ing's en­ergy per­form­ance. The PHPP Ex­pert seal is the pre­ferred way to prove this.
  • Pass­ive House De­sign­er/Con­sult­ant ex­am suc­cess­fully passed
  • Take part in the cer­ti­fi­er’s course
  • Con­tract with PHI as an ac­cred­ited build­ing cer­ti­fi­er
