This AECB CarbonLite course is delivered by UK experts in the Passivhaus field and will equip you to work on exciting, low-energy projects. You will learn alongside like-minded professionals from a range of disciplines and develop a skillset that will enable you to offer your clients game-changing levels of comfort and quality.

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. To get the most out of taking the full course we recommend that you have good knowledge of UK construction systems, an ability to read building plans and an understanding of basic algebra. Delegates who do not wish to take the exam can opt to take specific modules only to enhance their learning in particular areas.
