Site supervisor
Commissioning / Certification
Exam

In large and complex construction projects, practitioners and coordinators face many challenges, especially with regard to energy efficiency aspects.

Take a Site Su­per­vi­sor course to get skills and know­ledge that are es­sen­tial to suc­cess­fully ex­ecut­ing com­plex and large Pass­ive House and En­erPHit build­ing design on-site.

Look for­ward to nu­mer­ous ex­amples and prac­tic­al in­form­a­tion about con­struc­tion man­age­ment, opaque and trans­par­ent build­ing ele­ments, air­tight­ness and mech­an­ic­al ser­vices and learn to as­sess the im­pact of your de­cisions on the con­struc­tion site on the en­ergy bal­ance of the build­ing.

Module “Commissioning”

Does the Passive House live up to its promise? Does the building really function as energy-efficiently in reality as planned? For this topic, the commissioning of the building is of the greatest importance - apart from the construction.

Take this course and get as­sist­ance for plan­ning and ex­ecut­ing the com­mis­sion­ing for MVHR, heat­ing and cool­ing sys­tems or shad­ing. Learn about mon­it­or­ing, data ac­quis­i­tion, meas­ur­ing un­cer­tain­ties and soft­ware tools for per­form­ance evalu­ation and op­tim­isa­tion.

 

Module “Navigating certification”

Afraid of high workload for Passive House certifications? No worries – just take this course to profit efficiently from the advantages of a Passive House / EnerPHit certification.

Become familiar with the certification process and criteria. Explore the consultancy service and the clear and helpful certification platform, get an overview about all documents you need. This will enable you to offer your client the benefits of Passive House / EnerPHit certification - effectively and cost-efficiently.

This course will prepare you to pass the additional Site Supervisor exam or the Construction Verifier exam. The exam itself however is not included in the course. It will be offered online.

On successfully passing the Site Supervisor exam, you will receive the additional certificate "Site Supervisor" - if you have a valid Passive House tradesperson certificate.
