Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant - Exam preparation (CEPH2)

Due to popular demand, the second part course got shortened from 10 to 5 and a half days. This will only work if you start preparations a month out from course commencement with exercises and quizzes on the online learning platform. Therefore, enrolments close on 31 October 2019, and you are expected to work through exercises about 8 hours per week in your own time during all of November.
On day 6 of the classroom meetings, you have the chance to sit a very tough exam. All days up to the exam will be chock-full of information. But wait, there is more: there will be homework! You will eat, breathe and dream of Passive Houses – do not attempt to do anything else during this week.
If you are prepared to work hard and take a risk, please do enrol now!

Being successful in this course will not be possible without knowledge obtained in the first part course or equivalent training. Please self-test whether you have acquired equivalent skills here:  Take the test!
Please be discouraged from enrolling without possession of the prerequisites.

The course builds on material discussed in CEPH1, but goes into more detail. It is structured along the learning targets for the Certified Passive House Designer exam, which can be obtained here.
Immediately after course completion, students have the option of sitting the externally assessed exam leading to the internationally recognised qualification Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant.
The exam for this course will be held on Saturday, 06 October 2018.
The classroom part of the course starts on Monday and ends at 12 noon on Saturday. The exam will finish at 4 pm on Saturday.
Additional charges for the optional examination (NZ$500) apply. It is furthermore necessary to buy a copy of the latest Passive House Planning Package.

While successfully completing this course increases the chances of passing the externally assessed exam significantly, it is no guarantee. The exam is notoriously tough.
