A copy of a letter (e.g. diploma, master craftsman's diploma or similar document, translated into German or English if applicable) proving this qualification must be provided to the examining institution. On the basis of these documents the examining institution shall decide whether to issue a Passive House Designer or Passive House Consultant certificate to the applicant upon successful completion and shall also recommend the professional title under which he/she will be listed on the internet hereforth. The examining institution shall forward a copy of the qualification document to the PHI, together with the original signed application and the examination booklet.
The Passive House Institute (PHI) shall issue the Passive House Designer or Passive House Consultant certificate after successful completion of the examination.
