Passive House 8 Day Consultants Training Program, Jan 20 - 27, Waitsfield, VT
Event Description

Yestermorrow is pleased to partner with Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) and offer the complete PHIUS Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC) Training program.
This will be the only location in the U.S. to provide the full training via an in-person format.

The passive house concept represents today’s highest energy standard with the promise of slashing the heating energy consumption of buildings by an amazing 90%. In the realm of super energy efficiency, passive house presents an intriguing option for new and retrofit construction in residential, commercial, and institutional projects.

The first half of the program focuses on basic low energy design practices, theory of heat transfer, the software tool WUFI Passive and its methodology to calculate the specific energy performance of single- and multi-family residential buildings.

The second half of the course addresses mechanical systems design, passive house retrofits, non-residential buildings, quality assurance, and economic feasibility.

After passing a final exam (offered on the final evening of the program), participants earn the professional designation Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC). Participants will need to bring a laptop, and have basic Excel knowledge.
