Introduction to Hydrogen Fundamentals

Course Description

The prevalence of hydrogen and its application in fuel cells is constantly increasing. Anyone who works with systems that use hydrogen must be aware of the potential hazards involved and the protective measures they may need to take. The institution for statutory accident insurance and prevention requires that employers make their employees aware of the hazards involved in handling hydrogen. This applies to all employees, not just to mechanics in workshops, but also to cleaning staff or office workers who could potentially come into contact with systems or vehicles that use hydrogen.

Our practical, web-based self-study program ensures that employees are appropriately trained. Employees will subsequently be aware of the hazards posed by hydrogen and learn how to perform first aid in the event of an emergency. The course includes several exams, and the final certificate serves as documentation of course completion.
