The four-day 120A: Passive House Design and Construction course covers the technical, economic and policy elements of Passive House buildings. Participants learn how to apply Passive House principles in the context of building physics, windows and mechanical systems. Numerous case studies, both domestic and international, demonstrate current best practices and teach concepts of cost assessment. Participants also can solidify their learning with interactive exercises throughout the course.

120B: Understanding and Working with the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) enables you to take on your first Passive House project. It provides step-by-step instructions for using the PHPP energy modelling software, which is essential for designing a Passive House building. Participants learn the structure, inputs and outputs of PHPP, and how to select appropriate climate data sets and record building measurements. Participants model a sample Canadian project to assess building heat loss, energy demand and summertime overheating risk, and look at the reliability of data sources and how design decisions affect building-energy demand.
