CEPH Designer/Planner Course

The Certified European Passive House Designer Course will be held in October/November 2012 at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

For over 10 years the Passive House Standards have been adopted for many building types - both new build and renovations - and interest is rapidly increasing worldwide. The supply chain has matured and a wide range of Passive House Standard products are available.

In order to promote adoption of this advanced standard and ensure that it is implemented with correct quality, the EU funded the CEPH project to deliver robust training and certification for Passive House Designers across EU member states. The course and exam will be delivered in Glasgow by the University of Strathclyde supported by Passive House experts from across the EU. The course provides advanced training for architects and designers already experienced in energy optimised construction and renovation. On passing the exam individuals are registered by the Passive House Institute and can use associated materials to market their services (www.passivehousedesigner.eu).

The course includes 80 detailed topics covering: The heat-insulating building shell, Construction heat bridges, Passive House windows, Air-tightness and Blower Door Test (workshop), Thermography (workshop), Ventilation, Summer comfort, Utilisation of residual heat, Quality Assurance of heating and ventilation, Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) with a range of buildings and your own project, Passive House factor 10 renovations, Non-residential Passive Haus, Profitability and Loan program calculations, Tendering and awarding contracts, Construction Supervision and Quality Assurance, Customer support.
