Oct 19 - Dec 1 - Saskatoon - Passive House Night Class at Saskatchewan Polytechnic (10 Day Equivalent)

Please see the attached flyers for the Saskatoon and Regina 1 day courses. The 1 day course is aimed at all construction industry professionals, architects, designers, local government, real estate agents, builders, developers, home owners, sustainability enthusiasts and anyone interested in learning the basics of energy efficient building.

The following topics will be covered:

• Passive house design fundamentals

• Super insulated envelopes

• Methods for achieving extreme air tightness

• Passive house quality windows

The Passive House Night Class in Saskatoon will be equivalent to the newly developed CanPHI West 10 day course, created in collaboration with the Passive House Academy (Ireland/U.S.). However it will be spread over 7 weeks, held on both Monday and Tuesday nights starting October 19.

The new program offers greater depth and is divided into the equivalent of 4 days in-class Theory and Design Workshops, followed by an optional 3 days in-class of PHPP and DesignPH training with the addition of 3 days of online study and exam preparation material.
