Passive House Canada: ONLINE: Achieving the Passive House Standard for Existing Buildings – Feb 2022

DATES: Day 1 & 2: Feb 7 & Feb 10/Day 3 & 4: Feb 14 & Feb 17, 2022

Buildings shape the lives, health and wellbeing of individuals and communities. Unfortunately, too many of the buildings across Canada often have significant problems: from drafty building envelopes, to mold and moisture problems, to inefficient HVAC systems. The Passive House standard has evolved over the years and now includes powerful tools, guidelines and certification pathways which can assist design and construction professionals seeking to retrofit existing buildings to be more comfortable, healthier and use less energy.

This in-depth seminar will introduce participants to the Passive House retrofit ‘EnerPHit’ standards and highlight some examples of successful Passive House retrofits from around the world. We will discuss the basic principles of Passive House design, including thermal comfort, energy efficiency, durability and health – as well as some of the common tools and techniques for achieving these goals on retrofits. We’ll also review how the EnerPHit standard fits into the larger efforts at decarbonization across Canada. Anyone looking to rehabilitate an existing building will benefit from this course, and in particular this course is a crucial first step for anyone looking to certify a building as a Passive House EnerPHit retrofit.

Passive House Canada: ONLINE: PHPP Expert – Mar 2022

DATES: Day 1-2: Mar 7 & Mar 10/Day 3-4: Mar 21 & Mar 24, 2022

The Passive House Institute (PHI) has extended the existing training and certification system for designers and tradespeople to acknowledge the further education of professional groups and the activities that are important for the construction of Passive Houses. In addition, more focus will be placed on “lifelong learning” and the gradual acquisition of Passive House knowledge.

With this advanced PHPP training program, you will be prepared to take the exam and receive the corresponding additional certificate (“PHPP Expert”). Deeper knowledge and competencies in the use of PHPP and the entry of complex data for non-residential and refurbishment projects into PHPP are crucial to ensure the high quality of Passive House projects and to avoid performance gaps.
