Learn how to plan and design a Passive House building!
Become a competent Passive House planner and designer by learning everything from how to define the thermal envelope to how to overcome frequent planning and construction challenges. This course will take you into the details of Passive House buildings to ensure that the desired energy savings are actually achieved and that the building will perform as planned!
There are three approved Australian Passive House education providers who deliver this course and we encourage you to explore them all and select the one that works for you.
Not an architect or a building designer?
If you are an architect or a building designer, with this qualification, you get to be called a 'Certified Passive House Designer'.
If you are anything else, you get to be called a 'Certified Passive House Consultant’.
A single round of pro clima Passive House Scholarships is available for the year.
Pro Clima Australia Pty Ltd will provide full subsidy for the Certified Passive House Designer course, and the externally assessed exam, after the scholarship recipient has confirmed enrolment in a 2021 Certified Passive House Designer course with one of the three approved Australian Passive House education providers.
