Here is what Passive House Canada students are saying about our Online Pathway to Certification training

120A at PHC involves world-class PH actors, now Canadian leaders in green building. Several case analysis on real-life projects (mega to single family house) bring the greatest value in the learning curve as a student.

Philippe

PSB Construction

Hi Luiz, you and Philippe did a great job!  My feedback is it should remain an online course.  Philippe explained the materials very well, at a good pace and it worked well doing an example together first, and then allowing us to try the exercise afterwards.  Some of the inputs were tricky, and without the example first I would not have understood it.

Tyson

VP at AMAN Builders Inc.

I recently took the opportunity of extra time at home to complete the Passive House Canada training courses, learning the fundamentals of design and construction as well as the PHPP energy modelling tool. I strongly believe Passive House construction is the best way forward for a resource-conscious world and I look forward to using this knowledge in my future green building career. Thanks to Luiz Bezerra, Passive House Canada/Maison Passive Canada, and my instructors Marcel Studer, Philippe St-Jean, Evelyne Bouchard, and Michael Nemeth.
