These bitesize afternoon modules offer insight into all the main principles of the Passivhaus Standard and what makes a good low energy, comfortable building. These sessions are being run in conjunction with the Passivhaus Trust and a good introduction to the full Passivhaus Certified Designer Course.

The trainers are experts who are successfully designing, building and advancing Passivhaus in UK - among others, Bill Butcher, Alan Clarke, Sally Godber, Nick Grant, John Palmer, Eric Parks, Mark Siddall, and Passivhaus Certifiers Will South, Mike Roe and Peter Warm.
