I recently completed the Passivhaus tradesperson course, which was run my Jesus Menendez. The course content was challenging and interesting. This course is a practical and detailed introduction to passivhaus methodology. Certainly challenging and easily the most comprehensive PD course I’ve ever been through. Fantastic!
