Great, if you're looking for fast-tracked accreditation. The way it was delivered: Anton was clear and succinct with an ability to make sure the information was understood before moving on.

I am really happy with the decision of taking this course, the lectures are very well prepared and the theoretical informations are very well complemented by practical situations explained and by many tips and tricks. The flexibility of the parts which are harder is very wellcomed, as everyone has a different pace. The only thing that I think deserves a little bit of adjustment are the 2nd and 3rd module as timings and programmed meetings for questions, maybe more time and more meetings to keep a tighter schedule would be nice.

I liked the fact that I could learn and complete the course at my own pace. Very well structured and thorough learning material, with a good amount of sample exercises and practice exam papers. The bonus learning material offered are great! They'll further help solidify what has been learned over the course.

I found the course very interesting and relevant with the current push for more sustainable practices and buildings. Both Anton and Svetlin are very knowledgeable and keen on answering any questions we have as well as making sure people understood what was discussed in each session. It’s quite intense if you have a full time occupation but that’s not a critique of the course itself.

I am really impressed by this course and the knowledge of Anton and Svetlin on the Passive House. The course is really well structured and also with additional imputs and infromation. Anton is really helpful and he is always available for any question or information. The Community is also a great tool to share knowledge and questions with other specialists and also with Anton and Svetlin.

I liked the fact that it was well organized, easy to follow the program at your own pace thanks to the courses recorded on the platform. The new „Community” is a very welcome platform where we can learn from the questions asked by other colleagues. This has helped me personally!

M.Arch - Senior Lecturer in landscape architecture

Having pursued a Ph.D. in design for sustainability and adopting a holistic approach to sustainable architecture in the academic realm for over two decades, I found myself seeking practical knowledge to transition effectively into the industry. The course not only met but exceeded my expectations, providing me with the hands-on knowledge I needed to bridge the gap between theoretical expertise and practical application. As someone deeply committed to promoting sustainability and holding a position as an academic commissioner in the Essex Climate Action Plan Committee, I embarked on this journey with the hope of acquiring the necessary skills to contribute meaningfully to the industry. The course, with its well-structured content and expert tutors, has equipped me with the practical insights required to make a significant impact in the field. Upon completion and certification as a designer, I am eager to apply the skills acquired and contribute towards realizing net-zero carbon homes for the future, particularly in our county. I believe that the knowledge gained through this course will not only enhance my professional capabilities but will also enable me to contribute more profoundly to the ambitious goals set by the Essex Climate Action Plan Committee.

I would recommend the Passive house school course if you are architect or engineer - Very good course, learned a lot from passive standards The method of the presentation is very nice and clear. The materials/course is important as fundamental knowledge of Passive House design. It was perfect!

Great course, interactive, very well prepared teachers with background in designing and assessing Passive Houses, a great blend of theory and practical examples. Bonus you get to design a house in PHPP and get a strategy and tons of exercises in order to prepare for the exam. Great job Anton and Svetlin ! I highly recommend your course.

I loved the whole course and am very satisfied. I am happy with the decision to go with Passive House School and would make the same decision again! The structure of the whole course was very well thought out and organised. The additional material provided, such as the case study of the Sophia house inc. site photos, the presentation as well as the live walk through of various components, ducts etc were very useful. Our course facilitators were very attentive and patient with us!

The course has been very well organised with step-by-step guidance on how to create the building model for designPH. The teaching was very clear and when I posted a question, the answer came very quickly, within a day of posting. Hence, the support has been great. This course has saved me many hours of trying to work out how to use Sketchup and designPH so has been a very worthwhile investment. Also, to be able to go back to all the video teachings with no expiry date has made this course invaluable.

"The course offered me a life/work/education balance. It being online and on-demand, helped me to fit it into my schedule. The feedback and answers to questions are almost instantaneous. Anton and Svetlin have deep knowledge of the field. The answers are sharp and to the point. The course is structured in a way that in my opinion, anyone can gain the knowledge and be able to implement it in their projects.
The greatest thing of all, I would say is the passive house school community. This is a great idea, and it will be really helpful in the future, not only to share information, and feedback with peers but also a way to connect with each other."

I am glad I enrolled in the Passive House 101 course.  It increased my understanding and desire to construct a passive home. I think PH building is the TESLA of the construction industry and everyone needs to adapt... It's not the future of building, it should be the NOW of building.

"The designPH Masterclass is an essential resource for whoever wishes to develop proficiency in DesignPH and learn the most time-effective workflow strategy to coordinate/transfer sets of information across the three softwares used: PHPP, DesignPH, and Sketchup. The practical step-by-step approach allows the student to build their own accurate model, with a clearly structured method, examples, tips, and tricks. The chance to arrange a meeting with the organizers and discuss your own project is also a vital feature to get professional feedback on your own project."

"I like that the course is very prescriptive on achieving the PH standard for all buildings. The CPHD/C course is the best program on the seriousness of why we should go PassiveHaus and how to do it pragmatically with fool-proof concepts."

"The course was well structured and very well organised. Anton and Svetlin presented clearly and have a comprehensive knowledge of Passivhaus design, being able to answer any questions around the topics of discussion without hesitation. An excellent course that I am extremely glad to have participated in. The course has given me an excellent foundation on which to further build my Passivhaus knowledge and improve my sustainable design practice. 'Active' learning in the PHPP workshop helped to put the fundamental concepts of Passivhaus, covered in the learning seminars, into practice and makes the prospect of completing a PHPP worksheet for a live project less intimidating."

I personally think you have the best format I've seen so far for an online course with so many practical applications, with so much information, all presented in a relatively short time. It's definitely clear that you worked very hard to get it to this point. Congratulations! Honored I could attend to this and learn from you."

I am very satisfied with the dedication, inputs organization of the material and also online material."

Tom Cole

"Well structured, organized, and communicated. The pace was good, spread over 2 weeks with a few weeks to study for the exam I thought was optimum. It was particularly useful seeing Svetlin's Passive House projects. The course is great & would highly recommend it. It has vastly improved my understanding of building technology and feel every architect should be taught this."

The course was organized and goes deep into the core of the passive house design principles. The instructors went beyond the material of the course to explain and make sure every information they have provided is well understood. They even prepared materials to get us ready for the exam and make us familiar with the exam process. This is the best ever course... Beyond well organized and prepared. Really, you get what you ask for and even more!

“Svetlin and Anton were amazing in teaching us a lot about Passive Houses in this intensive course. They not only made sure we understood the concepts, but they took time for us to know how to solve problems and do the exercises. They answered every question, more or less related to the course. It was great and I totally recommend this course.”
