Professional certification is a core activity of the Passive House Institute (PHI). To ensure professionals have good Passive House knowledge, certifications have been established for architects and engineers – the designers or planners, with the Certified Designer (or Consultant) designation. And then a designation for builders, contractors, and tradespeople are provided with the Certified Passive House Tradesperson.

You can achieve the designation either by passing a rigorous examination or by completing a Passive House building. In either case, it is recommended that professionals and builders working on Passive House buildings take the respective training courses – to ensure a solid introduction to the fundamentals of Passive House and a better likelihood of succeeding on the exam or in the building construction.
