Creating understanding of the importance of hydrogen as a fuel. Beginning with its basic physical and chemical properties, this course culminates in the latest breakthroughs around this highly versatile clean technology.

The purpose of this programme is to introduce the evolution of hydrogen fuel cells and hydrogen technologies for use today. Learners' will gain an appreciation for this promising energy source. and will  learn how it works in vehicles and devices, as well as its potential applications across many industries. Through hands-on activities and real-world examples, they explore the environmental and economic implications of using hydrogen in our daily lives.

The course examines issues ranging from safety protocols to regulations surrounding the production and transport of hydrogen fuel. By understanding these challenges and uncovering new opportunities, students can help shape a more sustainable future for us all. Finally, participants discover ways to access further knowledge in line with their own interests and initiatives that contribute to a greener world for everyone.
