PHI’s Certified Passive House Tradesperson Accreditation Exam
May 24 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT$350.00
To be (an internationally recognized) Passive House Tradesperson, you will need to take the CPHT Accreditation exam. Exam dates are set by the Passive House Institute, and the first time we are planning to offer the exam in Pittsburgh will be on Friday, May 25th. The other dates PHI has set can be found here, but the May exam is the only one currently planned on being offered in Pittsburgh.
The written theory exam is in three parts:
- Passive House Basics – 45 minutes
- Building Envelope – 45 minutes
- Building Services – 45 minutes
The first section, Passive House Basics, is required. Each participant may chose to take the exam specifically for Envelope, Services, or both.
By taking this exam, you will be listed as a resource in the international database, which lists 208 certified tradespeople (as of April 2018), the vast majority of which are in New York.
