120C: Exam Preparation for Passive House Designer/Consultant Exam (In-class) – Vancouver

December 1, 2018 @ 5:00 pm to December 3, 2018 @ 1:00 am

$585 – $675

The Passive House Designer/Consultant Exam is challenging, even for experienced architects and building professionals, so thorough preparation is essential. This two-day exam preparation course is specifically designed for those who have completed courses 120A and 120B (or equivalent), and who wish to write the exam to become a Certified Passive House professional. It gives participants the tools required to write a successful test.

Overviews of each topic that could potentially be tested in the exam will be presented and participants will be able to complete example test questions, including a design exercise, and will learn to identify common mistakes and discuss exam time management.

Note: The in-class and online exam preparation modules both review the exam material but contain different example test questions and exercises. Past participants have found it beneficial to complete both the online and in-class exam preparation courses, though this is not required. The online module requires separate registration. We recommend beginning the online module after the completion of 120A.
