PHIUS+ Raters focus on single-family residential projects. The course is geared toward experienced RESNET and BPI professionals, and provides grounding in passive building principles as well as a guide to onsite quality assurance for the PHIUS+ program.

Some topics include:

  • Enclosure integrity design strategies
  • Passive building mechanical/ventilation systems
  • On-site verification of passive building construction features
  • Airtightness/blower door testing protocols

This training is delivered in two parts: self-paced online modules followed by 9-hours of live instruction. Upon registration of the program, students will receive a login to the PHIUS Training Portal. The self-paced modules will become available 2-weeks prior to the live instruction start date.

The course concludes with an exam. Successfully completing the course and exam qualifies the trainee as a PHIUS+ Rater.  

Please note that Certified Passive House Consultants (CPHC®) are eligible to become PHIUS+ Raters, but cannot rate their own projects.
