CPHC® and CPHB Training Updates



Due to the coronavirus, three upcoming classes have been postponed:

  • New York Phase II, in-class CPHC program scheduled for March 16 - March 20. PHIUS was postponed.
  • The Chicago CPHB builder training program scheduled for  March 31 - April 2 has also been postponed, 
  • The Austin, Texas CPHB program scheduled for May 6 - 8 was also postponed.

Good news: The CPHC in-class program and the CPHB curriculum have been reformulated as fully online programs. 


  • This first online Phase II session is dedicated to enrollees in the postponed NY Phase II In-Class program. PHIUS will make the online Phase II program more broadly available soon.
  • The online Phase II program will begin May 4 with a live session, which will cover format and structure of the program. New York enrollees will be contacted directly.
  • The new online Phase II will not require five consecutive days of  classes. Instead, it's designed to allow students to complete the program over several weeks as convenient.
  • The program will comprise live sessions (which will be recorded for later review), group projects, and other pre-recorded material.
  • To become a CPHC®, students must complete Phase I and II. They must pass a scheduled online exam at the end of the program, and as always, complete a take-home design exercise. 


RDH Building Science and PHIUS have reformulated the CPHB program--which previously required one online module plus three days of in-class instruction--into an all online format. 

PHIUS and RDH will roll out the new CPHB all-online program in May and June:

Course 1
Tuesday through Friday
May 12th-15th and 19th-22nd
3pm-5:45pm Eastern, noon to 2:45 Pacific

Course 2
Tuesday through Friday
June 2nd-5th and 9th-12th  
Noon to 2:45pm Eastern, 9am-11:45am Pacific

Enrollees in the postponed Chicago and Austin classes will be given registration priority. If you were enrolled and either program, you will be contacted directly with details.

Registration will be opened to all comers on April 14. Check back then. 

We appreciate your patience as we all work through this together.
