AECB CarbonLite Retrofit Training
This on-line, retrofit course provides you with the tools to understand how buildings interact with moisture and energy and what makes for a comfortable and healthy environment. Bringing together a vast body of experience, this is the first advanced retrofit course of this type in the UK. Study at home, with on-line tutor sessions with AECB expert practitioners.
This course is aimed principally at UK construction professionals and those whose role involves decision making around retrofit. It brings together a wealth of knowledge on low energy building retrofit including drawing on Passivhaus Enerphit experience. The focus is on the undertaking of appropriate energy efficient retrofit for the building, and aims to deepen your understanding of building physics and the risks associated with measures in order to enable you to make informed decisions.
Passivhaus Designer Training and Certification.
This course is aimed principally at building professionals in the UK: Architects, Builders, Building Engineers and others who want to learn how to deliver real low energy buildings.
