Open to housing and construction professionals as well as first time self-builders, the Beattie Passive Training Academy provides all the skills and support in understanding the Beattie Passive Build System and the benefits of Passivhaus living.
“This was one of the best training courses I have ever been on – very hands-on and I learnt a lot. It also totally transformed my preconceived expectations of Passivhaus. The Beattie Passive system is one of the best and easiest building systems I have ever seen.”
David, Best Build.
"The Beattie Passive training course is perfect for anyone wanting to build a super-low energy home. Whether you're a self builder or a building company, by the end of the course you'll know you can do it. I know I did!”
Andrew Bowden - CEO at Cartrefi Conwy said "Beattie Passive not only deliver high quality Passivhaus homes, they also actively engage with the local community to bring vital skills and education in construction. These values run parallel to our own and having outlined our housing objectives, it was clear that a Factory would be hugely effective in helping us to achieve them. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with Beattie Passive."
“John was a really good teacher and was very thorough; all set in a great environment to learn.”
"Thanks for access to the course, it just reaffirmed to me how clever it all is and simple enough even for me.”
“Great course, learnt a lot not only the system but also the background of the company. Well looked after by the training team”
