The Supervising Net-Zero and Passive House Construction microcredential is for individuals in the construction industry or those who have recently completed a related construction program and seek to gain the skills, knowledge, and tools unique to supervising construction on Net-Zero, Net-Zero-Ready, or Passive House construction projects.
Whether you want to coordinate and supervise smaller teams and sub-trades on smaller projects (Part 9 buildings) or work with larger teams on complex projects (larger Part 9 or Part 3 wood-frame buildings), you will develop your ability to manage compliance with the performance requirements of BC Energy Step Code and Net-Zero Energy and Passive House standards, and prepare for the upcoming changes to the National Building Code.
The microcredential consists of five courses that build upon each other in knowledge and focus on practical examples in wood-frame buildings. Upon completion, you will have:
- Confidence to ensure project compliance with performance requirements and compliance process of the BC Energy Step Code and Passive House standard.
- In-depth knowledge to inform design, coordinate work, and control construction quality to achieve airtightness and enclosure (low-TEDI) performance levels.
- Experience with tools and strategies to support site supervision activities gained with coaching from seasoned industry leaders.
