Online Passivhaus Masterclass Training

Passivhaus Trust Masterclass logo

The Passivhaus Trust has secured funding from CITB to develop our Masterclass programme into Online Training.

The Trust's previous Masterclass events have been well attended and well received by the industry. After listening to feedback we are developing the content into online courses. This will expand our scope to disseminate the Masterclasses to a much greater audience, and to the wider construction industry. By offering presentations, exercises, videos, and questionnaires that can be accessed at any time or place there is a huge potential for sharing information, thus increasing knowledge and uptake of Passivhaus and low energy building within the UK.

Some of the Masterclass topics that will be developed into online training include:

  • Building design
  • Large/Complex Buildings
  • Summer Comfort in buildings
  • Construction Detailing                 
  • Airtightness                                   
  • MVHR and heating strategies                                                
  • Delivery and QA
  • Retrofit

The Trust's training courses are typically 5 hours in length and have a mixture of both presentations and practical exercises. The intention is to have an online portal with online training videos, pdf presentations and questionnaires proving participants have completed and understood the course material. Still at early development stages, the Trust will be engaging with industry experts and authors of the core material to further develop the existing training material.

All modules will have CEPH renewal points. We expect to deliver the first online courses later this year.
