The first ever certified course in the global leading energy efficiency standard, namely, the Passive House Standard, will be rolled out in Northern Ireland in May. The Northern Ireland Housing Executive (NIHE) is currently supporting two innovative Passive House schemes, one being the Dungannon scheme, (new build and retrofit) and a number of private Passive House projects are also in the pipeline. Some NIHE staff have themselves taken a course with the Passive House Academy -so this is your chance to get involved in the revolution and take a step ahead of the rest!
The course will be held at South Eastern Regional College (SERC) in their Ards Campus. It comprises an 8 Day Course on May 10th to 13th and May 31st to June 3rd, leading to the Certified European Passive House Designer qualification.
