We’ve had participants from more than 25 countries and here is what they have to say about our courses.
The course was very good! I liked the delivery and found the content engaging. I like that Anton is always happy to answer questions and provide extra explanations when necessary.
I really enjoyed using the online platforms for the course/community, it is very user-friendly and easy to pick up.
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."
"The course was very well thought through and explained enough information to get me started using the software."
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."
"Lots of examples, patience, and experience from Svetlin and Anton. The course was great! Would and will recommend it to others. A lot of knowledge in a short amount of time."
"I am really happy with the content. I wish my teacher from the uni was explaining as good as you."
"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 taught in an interactive way, by very friendly instructors. The course material is very practical and actionable. The PHPP workshop is very important, appreciate the training. Great course! I highly recommend it."
"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."
"The course was straight to the point, no time wasted, and well structured."
"effectivness / focus / organisation / team work. Very good traning!"
The course is totally focused on and goes deep into learning about the Passivhaus standard. For me personally, it had a well-organized structure and covered the subjects extensively. The personal interaction with both Anton and Svetlin certainly added a lot to my understanding of the subjects. All in all, very good and inspiring!"
"I like most the presentations and practical examples, good explanations on thermal bridging and their impact. The course was excellent and very good to learn about passive design."
"I liked most that the course was interactive. 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."
"Online, concise well explained with a possibility to ask questions at all times. You will leave the course understanding the dynamics and importance of energy efficiency not only for passive houses but all types of constructions, residential, commercial, or industrial. I am very satisfied with the dedication, inputs organization of the material and also online material."
"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 videos and additional questions made it easy to go back to topics as required, most of the content was very well and easy to understand presented."
"There is a lot to learn very quickly but I thought the course was well presented with a different topic each day. It was very good and I would highly recommend it! Thank you Anton & Svetlin"
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!
“This is a great course to learn the basic principles of Passive House design.”
“Very good course, I totally recommend it. The method of the presentation is very nice and clear. The materials/course is important as fundamental knowledge of Passive House design.”
"The course is a comprehensive introduction to what Passive House means, covering all technical aspects of the construction/retrofit. In addition, there is a section dedicated to financial aspects to be considered when using certified materials, which I found extremely useful. The course is packed with great value, excellent value for money ratio, delivered to the expectations."

“The course is very interesting and covered most of the related design elements and principles that one needs to technically design and build at least a low energy building.”
“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.”
“I have filled a lot of the gaps in my knowledge. I have got, not only a lot of qualitative information but also a lot of practical experience from the instructors. It was very, very useful. I would recommend everyone to merge into the Passive House concept with the help of the Passive House School. Thanks a lot, guys!”
