South West College leads the delivery of new open-access training modules to support those working with Hydrogen

South West College alongside partners from five countries have developed a repository of openly accessible training modules for individuals or organisations working in industries that require operational knowledge of Hydrogen. Developed as part of the HySkills project, the Erasmus+ funded initiative will ensure sufficient skills and knowledge is built up across industry to successfully implement the Hydrogen economy. The eight interactive modules include:

  • Hydrogen Basics
  • Hydrogen Safety, Risks, Standards and Regulation
  • High Pressure Fittings and Connectors
  • Hydrogen Storage
  • Operation and Maintenance of Electrolysers and Fuel Cells
  • Hydrogen Transportation & Delivery
  • Hydrogen Combustion
  • Hyrdogen Sensors, Detectors & Monitoring

Project partners who supported South West College with the roll out of the 8 training modules include Dublin City University (DCU), The Arctic University of Northern (UiT), the European Institute for Innovation-Technology (Berlin) and Greece based PROME

Project technical consultant and researcher, Dr Charlie Farrell said;

South West College is delighted to launch these open access training modules as part of the Erasmus+ Programme. The modules are interactive in their nature and will compliment the existing knowledge that has been developed and shared with industry and academic partners through the HySkills project which has been formed with the aim of suitably preparing industries and organisations across Europe for the future of the Hydrogen economy
