Modules 1-7 provide learners with a basic but valuable technical introduction to hydrogen and hydrogen systems, including production methods, basic chemistry, electrolysis, storage, distribution, material compatibility, combustion, hydrogen refuelling stations, liquefaction, fuel cells, hydrogen batteries, standards and regulations and basic hydrogen safety.
Explore our non-accredited hydrogen courses, available for purchase and completion online. The 7 modules can be purchased and completed together as a series or individually on the Australian Training Alliance Energy Gateway website.
Who is this course for?
These modules contain elements that may be applied by workers in the automotive, construction, energy, engineering maritime, and transport sectors.
Module 4 provides learners with the basic knowledge required to comprehend many of the elements effecting hydrogen safety from production to end use including liquid and gaseous hydrogen systems.
2. Hydrogen Properties, Production and Basic Chemistry
Module 2 provides learners with valuable technical knowledge about hydrogen's unique properties, its typical production methods - including liquefaction and a basic understanding of the structure of atoms and elements and how they play a role in fuel cell and electrolyser operation.
Module 5 provides learners with a basic technical understanding associated with the operation, and chemistry involved in electrolysers and fuel cells, their associated Balance of Plant (BOP) and where these critical components may be found in electrolyser systems, fuel cell power systems, hydrogen batteries and back-up power systems.
3. Technical Principles of Compression, Storage, Distribution, and Combustion
Module 3 provides learners with introductory technical knowledge about the fundamentals of hydrogen compression, storage, distribution, combustion and the fundamentals of hydrogen compatibility - including embrittlement.
Module 6 provides learners with a broad technical overview of liquid gaseous hydrogen refuelling stations, learners will gain an understanding of HRS from hydrogen delivery and production through to dispensing and onboard hydrogen storage systems in FCEV's. While not critical to passing the knowledge test in this module, it is recommended that all learners complete the hydrogen safety module prior to commencing this module.
