The Passive House Fundamentals online course is located on our Moodle platform: participants can access it from wherever they want, in their own time and at their own pace. This allows for a tailored learning experience and reduces travel and accommodation costs.

It covers 10 topics: each one is divided into sub-units, including a video presentation followed by further material and a quiz. You need to pass the final assessment by the end of October, so we can best address knowledge gaps during the in-class training. Our staff will monitor your progress and provide you with technical support if needed.

Besides lectures and discussions, you will deepen your knowledge with workshops, as well as calculation and design exercises. In addition, you will have a closer look at our Passive House component and materials collection!
