Passive House Training

 

The international Passive House Standard is one of the most rigorous sustainability standards in the world. It is widely applied in Europe and there are also growing movements towards Passive House in the United States and the United Kingdom.


There are two qualifications available for Passive House professionals:

  • Certified Passive House Designer or Consultant (depending on background); and
  • Certified Passive House Tradesperson.

Certified Passive House professionals have demonstrated sound fundamentals in Passive House Design. Only individuals (not organisations) are certified. Every five years professionals must substantiate their credential through maintenance and further development of their knowledge.

There are currently two main providers - Box Hill Institute in Melbourne, and Smart Homes Plus in Sydney. See our training schedule below for more details.

Pro Clima Australia Pty Ltd offer a Passive House Design Scholarship. All enrolled applicants have the opportunity to apply. The successful applicant will receive full subsidy for the Australia Passive House Association Certified Passive House course delivered by Box Hill Institute and the externally assessed exam. For details on scholarships available, click here. Thanks to Pro Clima Australia for their generous support!
