What will you learn in the Passive House Builder Boot Camp?

All. The. Things.

  • The Value of Passive

    What is the Passive House standard, and why is it more like a building code than just a green building certification? Why will your clients thank you for knowing this standard?

  • High-Performance Envelopes

    What makes a building envelope preform, and how do you mitigate thermal bridges and other potential weaknesses early in the process?

  • Systems and Services

    How does the systems design integrate with a high-performing building, and what exactly are the indoor air quality requirements that make Passive so healthy?

Know more. Build better.

Understand building science and how it applies to your everyday work. Whether you are seeking Passive House certification or not, you can't un-learn the knowledge you gain in this class.

  • Limit liability & increase credibility

Testimonials

What our former students say...

"I received the best educational experience from Emu Systems! Got my Passive House Certification through their program/class. Be sure to take this class, you won't regret it!"

- Jared Phifer, Revolve Design Build

"I've been a green builder for 16 years, and I came in here and it was like trying to drink from a fire hose."

- Dave Edwards, My Earthbound Homes

“Every builder should take this class. Period.”

- Jed Wolfram, Bozeman Sustainabuild

“Valuable, Challenging, Invigorating! I thought the online format worked well. I've been through other training platforms that were not nearly as interactive as the lessons and weekly check-ins. The quizzes were engaging as well as the chat feature w/n the lessons was great. Enrico was really prompt with responding on those.”

- Anonymous, from Course Evaluation

“This was an outstanding training. The knowledge of the Emu team was complimented by the skills & experience of the other attendees. My brain hurt sometimes digesting the content – but that’s a good thing. Pay yourself and sign up for this training.”

- Jay Murdoch, Owens Corning

“Thoroughly enjoyed the course; Enrico and Mariana really know their stuff and convey it clearly. So glad I could geek out with the Emu MOB!”-

- Anonymous from 2020 Autumn Crew

“Just returned from an amazing week with the team at Emu Building Science immersed in learning about the Passive House standard. Both the training sessions and their Passive Pod workshop were outstanding. Many thanks to the exceptional Mariana and Enrico for sharing their knowledge and passion for the international Passive House standard. It was great to spend the past week learning and collaborating with a team of individuals passionate about building science, design, advancing high-performance building systems and building better.”

- Lee Tedesco, 2021 Summer Crew

Join the mob!

Clearly this guy thinks the Bundle is the best thing ever.

Why is he so happy? He just finished the 2-day in-person class, then he got to build a pod during the workshop using the knowledge he just absorbed during the training AND he is about to take the exam and become a CERTIFIED Passive House Tradesperson. Be like this guy!
