Initial qualification through a written examination
You can obtain the Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant certificate by successfully completing a written examination. Exams are offered at regular intervals by course/exam providers in cooperation with the Passive House Institute on a contractual basis.
The PHI fixes the examination dates and prepares the exam: It lasts 3 hours and must be taken in writing. The course/examination host will send the examination documents to the PHI after the first correction. After a second marking by the PHI, we will issue the certificate and sent it to successful participants together with the respective seal in digital form via e-mail. Further information can be found in the examination regulations. The content-related requirements for the examination can be found in the catalogue of learning targets.
A Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) is required to plan and optimise Passive House buildings. To register for the exam, you will therefore need a valid PHPP license, that is to say to acquire a PHPP.
Exam fees will be charged by the respective course/exam providers. They include the costs for services provided by the PHI (second marking, issue of the certificate and inclusion on the database).
