Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) is offering a two-day course for experienced raters who want to learn to conduct quality assurance for the PHIUS+ certification program. Passive buildings produce dramatic space conditioning energy savings (up to 60-80% compared to standard new construction). That’s why the demand for quality-assured passive building
is growing fast.

The PHIUS+ certification combines extensive design review with a rigorous on-site quality assurance program. PHIUS+ aligns with the quality assurance protocols of Energy Star 3.0 and DOE Zero Energy Ready Home.

The training includes one day of classroom work with a second day spent in the field, demonstrating advanced testing and inspection protocols for the PHIUS+ program. The course concludes on the second day with an exam. Successfully completing the course and exam qualifies a Rater to become a PHIUS+ Rater and earns the Rater fourteen (14) RESNET professional development credits.
