Passive Houses have proved successful over many years, in new constructions as well as in modernisations. Today, more than 20,000 buildings across Europe have been built according to the Passive House Standard. Several hundreds of these have been scientifically monitored over many years.
Now expert knowledge about the construction of Passive Houses can also be provided to tradespeople as part of further training. The aim of further training for the ”Certified Passive House Tradesperson” certificate is to convey an overall impression of the interdisciplinary Passive House concept to tradesmen involved in construction within the appropriate time.
The method of instruction is designed to impart specific Passive House skills. It is assumed that any other practical skills that are required are already present, because they are not specifically relevant for the Passive House or because they depend on the products or construction systems used in the respective construction work; practical skills can and should therefore be acquired by other means, either within the framework of educational training or through training measures organised by the manufacturers of the products or construction systems or their sales distributors.
