Think global. Build local.
Our curriculum has a strong foundation in the original PHI curriculum and learning objectives, with climate and market content specific to North America.
Through our own experiences, as well as collaboration and communication with our friends and colleagues using the international Passive House standard all over the world, we strive to apply global lessons and solutions to local construction practices.
We have a 96% pass rate!
As of May 2018, students taught with the Emu North American curriculum passed at a rate of over 96% on the international Certified Passive House Tradesperson exam, and we are constantly updating and revising our content to reflect the most current information available. We issue revisions to our curriculum every February at our Rocky Mountain CPHT course and exam.
Outline of Training Units
The catalogue of learning objectives is based on the assumption that tradespeople already possess the relevant skills required for construction work due to their basic training. The content is therefore restricted to essential additional knowledge relating to the Passive House.
