PHIUS+ Rater and Verifier Training

The PHIUS+ 2018 passive building Standard is the first passive building certification program to integrate a third-party quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) professional into the certification process. The QA/QC component provides risk management, and can help projects qualify for financial incentives. The PHIUS certified QA/QC professional:

  • Verifies plans and energy models at the design stage for compliance with certification requirements.
  • Performs onsite testing and inspection during multiple site visits to ensure the project is built as designed.

PHIUS provides two training programs for QA/QC professionals who wish to participate in the PHIUS+ building certification process.

Learn to Verify Big Phius Projects in the Big Apple! The demand for Phius Verifiers is greater than ever. The Northeast has become a hotbed for large-scale passive house projects--largely because of progressive efforts like NYSERDA's and similar efforts in Massachusetts and throughout New England. (If you're attending PhiusCon, it's a short train ride to the Big Apple from Tarrytown.)

If you want to take advantage of this exploding market, join us for the first in-person Phius Verifier program since 2019!
