Holy moly that was the best

I took my course and exam via Peel Passive House Consulting Ltd. and it was absolutely fantastic. If you have been thinking about it: Do it!

Peel Passive House is where I took my CPHC/D course and exam. The PPH crew is awesome, the cumulative knowledge and experience is legit. 10/10 would recommend to a friend, or my Mum if she ever decided to take a weirdly sharp turn in occupational direction.

I do not come from an educational AEC or engineering background. Being self taught when it comes to building physics and energy modelling; Andrew and Melissa's course was presented in a way that was easy to understand and digest, LOTS of visual data and very effective means of sorting and annotating material that helps maximize the learning from every slide. Andrew Peel is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to Passive House and my only regret is that due to Geography I was not able to take the course in person.


Peel School provided the right methodology and comprehensive approach to the field ofPassive House standard and physics behind it. In addition, preparation for the exam was extensive and at a good pace, and I was very pleased that during the exam day none of the topics were left out. I would highly recommend the course, while highlighting very responsive and friendly staff assistance during studies. I look forward to future collaboration.
