Think you know how to build? Strut your stuff!
Get accredited as a PHI Certified Passive House Tradesperson (CPHT).

Once a year in February, here in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, we host a 4-day class and accreditation exam to become a Certified Passive House Tradesperson (CPHT). Emu has developed a first-of-its kind, North American-specific curriculum with a hands-on workshop component for building professionals.


Don’t want to wait until February? You don’t have to attend our Rocky Mountain Retreat to learn about advanced building science. Emu’s curriculum is now being taught in classrooms all over North America, and we’re adding trainers from other cities to our circle all the time.

Emu is an accredited Training Provider with the International Passive House Institute (PHI). We are authorized to offer Certified Passive House Tradesperson (CPHT) courses + accreditation exams for building professionals.
