Passive building is growing, and the fastest-growing market segment is multifamily housing (affordable and market rate) and commercial buildings. This training prepares third-party Quality Assurance and onsite verification professionals to understand the application of passive building and verification principles for multifamily and commercial projects pursuing PHIUS+ Certification.

Some topics include:

  • Large building enclosure integrity design strategies
  • Passive building mechanical/ventilation systems
  • On-site verification of passive building construction features
  • Large building/multi-fan blower door testing protocols
  • Additionally, students will learn the specific requirements of the PHIUS+ Multifamily Certification Standard v2.2.

This training is delivered in two parts: self-paced online modules followed by 9-hours of live online 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+ Verifier. 

Please note that Certified Passive House Consultants (CPHC®) are eligible to become PHIUS+ Verifiers, however they cannot verify their own projects.
