Part A provides a comprehensive foundation in Passive House design and construction. These are the principles that need to be thoroughly understood in order to write the Certified Passive House Designer / Consultant exam. We also strongly recommend that if you intend to write the exam that you take Part B as well, since the exam cover aspects of PHPP and examinees are required to supply a valid PHPP registration number.
