Staying Up to Date

Passive building science and zero-energy building continues to grow and evolve, and isn't slowing down any time soon. The continuing education program is designed to ensure that Phius Certified Professionals keep pace with changes to tools, standards, materials and other best practices.

The Three Paths

All Phius Certified Professionals must maintain their credential to keep up to date with the latest in passive building. By default, all professionals' credentials expire three years after their original certification date. Listed below are three of the options to extend your credential for another three years.

Path 1: Work on a Certified Project

Phius Certified CPHCs, Phius Certified CPHBs, Phius Certified Raters and Phius Certified Verifiers can all extend their credential by taking the lead in their role on a Phius Certified Project.

Path 2: Continue Your Education

All professionals can renew their credential by completing additional training or continuing education courses. Details for each professional type are listed below.
