120C: Exam Preparation for Passive House Designer/Consultant Exam (online) – Vancouver
October 9, 2018 @ 8:30 am to 5:00 pm$195 – $495
Full course runs from October 9 to November 30, 2018
The Passive House Designer/Consultant Exam is challenging, even for experienced architects and building professionals, so thorough preparation is essential. This online 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.
The module is self-paced and provides slides, exercises and feedback on a submitted design exercise. Topics covered in this module include:
- Energy balance calculations
- Insulated opaque envelope
- Air tightness
- Thermal bridging
- Mechanical ventilation
- Passive House design exercise
*Please allow at least two weeks prior to the exam to register for the online module to ensure you have enough time to complete the exercises and receive feedback. We recommend beginning the online module after the completion of 120A.*
Note: The in-class and online exam preparation modules both review the exam topics 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 in-class exam preparation course requires separate registration (please see course calendar for details).
- Anyone pursuing the Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant designation
