Hydrogen Training

With the advent of electric mobility in today’s vehicles, the storage and provision of large amounts of energy has become more important than ever before. For this reason, and due to ever stricter regulations on pollutant emissions in motor vehicles, new technologies are constantly being developed to further advance the automotive industry.

In all these efforts to further increase the efficiency of modern vehicles, the fuel cell continues to move to the forefront. In a fuel cell, electrical energy is generated by a chemical reaction. The hydrogen required for this is gaseous, highly compressed and stored in special tanks in the vehicle.
However, the use of hydrogen as an energy source creates special hazards. These can occur during repair and maintenance, but also during operation.

In order to enable you to assess hazards on hydrogen-powered vehicles correctly and to carry out work safely, we offer you our training courses to obtain the necessary qualifications. Since electrical voltages are generated in the high-voltage range in fuel cell vehicles, additional qualifications in the high-voltage range are required. Please inform yourself about the high-voltage training courses here:

Battery technology and hydrogen technology

Hydrogen technology holds many opportunities for the future. However, anyone involved in hydrogen systems needs to know the properties and dangers of hydrogen. In the first module of our four-part hydrogen qualification, you will acquire basic knowledge about hydrogen in order to be able to handle systems or vehicles with gas-carrying systems safely.

Knowing the dangers of hydrogen - Hydrogen sensitisation

Fundamentals of hydrogen
Properties compared to other fuels
Sources of danger when handling gases
Possible protective measures
Samples of gas systems in vehicles and industrial plants
Principles of occupational safety when handling hydrogen

Time required for the instruction 4 teaching units (0.5 days)

Safe performance of specified activities on hydrogen systems - Basic principles for the safe handling of hydrogen

For the safe work on gas-carrying systems used in industrial plants or hydrogen vehicles, knowledge of the properties of hydrogen is just as relevant as knowledge of the structure and interactions of components and systems exposed to hydrogen. Basic principles in the safe handling of hydrogen provide you with the necessary knowledge to safely carry out specified work on hydrogen systems.

Time required for instruction at least 16 teaching units (2 days)

Developing safety engineering concepts - Working safely on hydrogen systems

Safe work on hydrogen systems is aimed at persons involved in development activities related to industrial plants or hydrogen vehicles. This includes the development of safety concepts for vehicles and test benches. With your in-depth knowledge from the third module, you will be able to work safely on hydrogen systems or hydrogen vehicles and implement safety concepts.

Time required for instruction at least 16 teaching units (2 days)

Competent person: Handling of hydrogen

With the completion of release and testing of systems using hydrogen, you can create and test safety concepts for the hydrogen infrastructure and release them for further applications. Your technical knowledge as well as your knowledge of the relevant legal regulations and technical rules enable you to be appointed as a qualified person according to TRBS 1203.

Time required for the instruction at least 4 teaching units (0.5 days)
