There are two ways to become a certified Passive House Designer or Consultant: through submission of a certified Passive House project, or by passing the standardized international exam. Examination dates are fixed by the Passive House Institute (PHI) and offered by Passive House Canada in cooperation with PHI. Certified Designers and Consultants will be listed on the Passive House website, as well as the international database. For information on certification via project design and documentation, please see PHI’s Project Qualification page.
The exam is thorough and time-limited, and it is not recommended that you attempt the exam without first taking courses 120A, 120B, and 120C offered by Passive House Canada.
