Hydrogen technology holds many opportunities for the future. However, professionals involved in hydrogen systems need to know the properties and dangers of hydrogen. The storage and provision of large amounts of energy is becoming increasingly important due to the change in mobility. In all efforts to increase the effectiveness of modern vehicles, the fuel cell is moving further into the limelight. In a fuel cell, electrical energy is obtained by means of a chemical reaction. The hydrogen required for this is gaseous, highly compressed and stored in special tanks in the vehicle. When using hydrogen as an energy source, however, special hazards arise: during repair, maintenance, but also during operation. We prepare you for these risks in our training.
Hydrogen technology and battery technology
In our four-part hydrogen qualification, you will acquire basic knowledge of hydrogen in order to be able to safely handle plants or vehicles with gas-carrying systems.
Know the risks of hydrogen – Hydrogen sensitisation
Time frame for the instruction 4 teaching units (0.5 days)
Basic principles in the safe handling of hydrogen
For safe work on gas-carrying systems used in industrial plants or in hydrogen vehicles, knowledge of the properties of hydrogen is just as relevant as knowledge of the structure and interactions of hydrogen-loaded components and systems. Basic principles for the safe handling of hydrogen provides you with the necessary knowledge to be able to carry out specified work on hydrogen systems safely.
Time scope for the instruction at least 16 teaching units (2 days)
Safe working on systems with hydrogen
Safe work on systems with hydrogen is aimed at people who are involved in development activities around industrial plants or hydrogen vehicles. This includes the development of safety-related 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 frame for the instruction at least 16 teaching units (2 days)
Qualified person: handling hydrogen
With completion of release and testing of systems with hydrogen, you will be able to 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 will enable you to be designated as a competent person in accordance with TRBS 1203.
Time scope for the instruction at least 4 teaching units (0.5 days)
