Become a PHPP Expert
You already have a Passive House Consultant / Designer certificate and you want to highlight your additional knowledge regarding PHPP advanced features, designPH, bim2PH and thermal bridges?
Then get your seal by successfully passing the next PHPP Expert exam!
As a prerequisite for the examination, candidates must first submit a homework assignment (setting up a PHPP for a non-residential building), which will be issued upon written request. They can then take the PHPP expert exam, which lasts 90 minutes (processing time only) and is divided in two parts: Multiple Choice tasks (45 minutes paper exam) and practical input in PHPP (45 minutes laptop exam).
- The paper exam is similar to the Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant exam.
- For the laptop exam, you will receive a partly prefilled PHPP file on a USB stick and a printed document with the tasks.
The basic knowledge and competencies regarding the handling of PHPP is part of the exam for the “Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant” and is assumed to be known. Thus the PHPP expert exam covers tasks regarding deeper PHPP knowledge and questions about the entry of complex buildings (residential and non-residential, new buildings and refurbishments). To prepare for the exam, you may take part in a dedicated range of Passive House Tools Workshops and check the PHPP Expert Learning targets.
