Green Building Alliance Offers Certified Passive House Tradesperson Training In March

The Pittsburgh-based Green Building Alliance is offering Certified Passive Tradesperson Training in 2 modules March 18-19 and March 25-26 at Conservation Consultants, Inc., 64 South 14th Street in Pittsburgh.
Building owners and developers in Western Pennsylvania are designing for Passive House certification, and high–profile projects like the Carrick Carnegie Library and Morningside Crossing senior housing project need qualified builders and contractors.  
Passive House is the world’s most rigorous building energy standard, and market leaders like New York City and Toronto have integrated/mandated Passive House principles for all new construction.
This training will prepare contractors, construction managers, developers, project managers, and tradespeople to build to the technically rigorous Passive House standard, and become officially certified as a Passive House Tradesperson.  
Participants will be listed in the Passive House Institute’s database upon passing the exam, in addition to being showcased on the Green Building Alliance website.    
Passive House optimizes light, air, and thermal energy of a building, reducing energy use by as much as 75 percent.  
Passive House principles can be applied to all types of buildings and prove especially lucrative within the commercial building sector, but thorough training is required to achieve it.  
Passive House principles can also be used to achieve other high-value green building standards (i.e. LEED v4 and Living Building Challenge).
