QA/QC Training Programs
The PHIUS+ 2015 Passive Building Standard is the first passive building certification program to integrate a third party quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) professional into the certification process. The PHIUS certified QA/QC professional:
- Verifies plans and energy models at the design stage for compliance with certification requirements.
- Performs onsite testing and inspection during multiple site visits to ensure project is built as designed.
PHIUS+ 2015 project certification recognizes that QA/QC is especially critical for passive buildings, where airtightness and superinsulation require special attention to detail at both the design and construction stages.
PHIUS provides two training programs for QA/QC professionals who wish to participate in the PHIUS+ building certification process. Click on the respective links below for more detailed information:
