A new e-learning programme, offered by the Passive House institute, is now available online. The video-based modules can be directly integrated into courses for professional designers, serving as preparatory material aimed at certification as a Passive House Designer or Consultant. They deal with general questions relating to heating demand and air quality, as well as with specific examples of planning for building services systems and the building envelope. Three freely accessible introductory modules provide an initial overview of the range of topics. These include:
The new programme is also a suitable way to prepare for workshops or the International Passive House Conference which will be held on 22 and 23 April in Darmstadt. Conference participants will receive a discount of 100 Euros on the full e-learning programme. As a useful supplement to the video material, various special activities will be offered at the conference, including a training model for planning an airtight and thermal bridge free building envelope.
