MBTI x Passive house for the trades

It is essential that those working on Passive House buildings can properly install components, accurately implement design details, and also assess the impact that changes from planned work will have on the performance of the building. Mistakes during construction can be costly, especially in high performance buildings where certification is being pursued. This course teaches practical Passive House building techniques alongside theory, and prepares participants for the Certified Passive House Tradesperson exam. It is delivered as a combination of in-class lectures and hands-on workshop experience, incorporating actual building of Passive House details relevant to the Canadian construction industry.

PLEASE NOTE: This course teaches the skills and knowledge required for the Certified Passive House Tradesperson – Building Envelope Specialization exam.

Topics Covered

Certified Passive House Tradespeople will be listed in the directory on the Passive House website and also on the international Passive House Association website.
