The PHPP expert exam is conducted online as in-class or home-office exam by the course/exam provider, using the online exam platform of the Passive House Institute. The exam lasts 2 hours and consists of two parts: Multiple Choice tasks and practical input in PHPP-like tables.
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.
