Frequently asked questions

If your questions aren’t covered below, you can contact us or chat with us.

Which Passive House course should I take?

To learn the core principles of the Passive House Standard, you may have a look at the Passive House 101 online course.

If you are a professional and want to learn how to design a Passive House/EnerPHit building and become an accredited Passive House Designer/Consultant, we recommend you to take the dedicated Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant course.

If you are a Passive House professional who wants to be on top of the industry, we recommend our Expert Masterclass series.

What is the difference between the cohort and the self-paced courses?

The cohort courses take place live (online) and are taken by a group of students (a cohort). Self-paced courses are based on prerecorded lectures and you can complete these courses at your own pace.

Note: All live lectures of the cohort courses are recorded and all course participants get access to the recordings.

How can I become an internationally recognized Certified Passive House Designer?

You can earn the international designation of “Certified Passive House Designer / Consultant” in one of two ways: by taking the Certified Passive House Designer Exam or by submitting project documentation.

If you want to submit project documentation, you have to doc­u­ment a cer­ti­fied Pass­ive House, En­erPHit ret­ro­fit or PHI Low En­ergy Build­ing where you ex­er­cised full re­spons­ib­il­ity for the build­ing design and the pro­ject plan­ning with the PHPP. Sub­mis­sion of a pro­ject doc­u­ment­a­tion can be used to earn or re­new the cer­ti­fic­ate for one per­son per build­ing.

Do I get a discount as a student or an iPHA Member?

Students and iPHA members get a 10% discount.

If you are an iPHA Member, please send an email to with a link to your iPHA membership to provide you with a discount code.

If you are a student, please send your proof of enrollment to from your student email address.

Are the courses accredited by any institution?

Our professional and expert courses are accredited by the Passive House Institute (PHI).

I’m hesitant to spend money right now, do you offer payment plans?

Yes, we do — all courses have a payment plan option. Alternatively, you can choose to pay up front and receive a discount on your enrollment.

This sounds nice, but will it really help me?

Our content is actionable and easy to implement in your projects. We’ve already helped hundreds of professionals hone their skills and implement the Passive House strategies in their projects through our courses. Check out the student feedback on each course page to hear about their experience learning with us.

Do I have to be an architect or engineer?

Nope. Our courses are made for anyone interested in learning about the Passive House Standard. Depending on how much in-depth you want to learn about the Passive House principles, you should choose between the Beginner, Professional or Expert courses. 

At our professional courses, we’ve had homeowners, investors, students, etc. 

I’ve never worked on a building project before, which course should I start with?

Having zero experience in the field, we would recommend you to first learn the core principles of the Passive House Standard, and start with the Passive House 101 online course.

Then if you want to become an accredited Passive House Designer/Consultant, you can move on to the Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant course.
