Coming Soon: Online Courses


Our educational courses are of interest to Albertans who care about sustainability, energy efficiency and creating healthier work, home and play environments. This past fall and winter, we offered courses across Alberta, including: Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Grande Prairie, Canmore, and Red Deer.


We are working on creating two online introductory courses:

General Course

Our general course, 5 Principles for a Healthier, More Affordable, Energy Efficient Home – Presented by Passive House Alberta, is for homeowners and individuals who are interested in learning more about the fundamental principles of Passive House design and how these can be incorporated into a renovation or new home build. This introductory course is perfect for the person who is new to Passive House principles, but is looking to enjoy a healthier, more comfortable home, even in our cold Alberta climate!

Technical Course

Our technical course, How the Passive House Approach helps Build Better Buildings and Healthier Communities, is geared towards industry professionals who are in the construction, building, planning and design industries. In this introductory course, we will take a more detailed approach into the benefits of incorporating Passive House design principles into residential, commercial and recreational buildings, using real-life examples. Learn how building to Passive House standards creates sustainable, energy-efficient buildings to minimize risk, maximize long-term profitability and provide competitive advantages.

The response to our courses has been terrific!


“This was such a good jumping off point for our new build. I have a better idea of what questions I should be asking.”

“The course made me even more passionate about Passive House and all it has to offer any building project – big or small. It reaffirmed the idea that we need to start thinking long-term and that if we do, we will see the benefits in many ways.”
