What our students are saying about our courses

I took the CPHD course with Peel passive house and I found the information to be both clear and concise. The slides are very easy to understand and the narrative is very clear. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to further their knowledge and career in making a difference to the future of our kids and our world.


The Peel Passive House Consulting Ltd coaches were really helpful to increase my understanding of the Passivhaus concepts and variables. I look forward to apply this knowledge in my regular practice as an architect in the greater Montréal (Qc) region and continue to promote improved awareness of construction quality overall for greater durability and comfort.


I came into the Peel Passive House CPHD course with very limited knowledge about the subject. I found that the courses took the time to inform and educate at a good pace, allowing for the right amount of time for concepts to sink in. The instructors were quick to reply to comments and questions and I felt like they had my back through the learning process. By sticking to the recommended amount of review of the course content and doing the practise questions and exercisesI ended up passing the exam, which is all you can ask for! 

I would definitely recommend this course for anyone interested in learning about passive house, but also about best practises in designing energy efficient buildings


Peel School provided the right methodology and comprehensive approach to the field of Passive 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.
