KnowHy is a 3 years European FP7-project (funded by the European Commission and coordinated by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking) that aims at providing to the widest possible audience of technicians specific training modules, practical, in an appropriate format and at affordable cost, to facilitate the deployment of the FC&H2 technologies expected to enter the market within the time frame 2014-2020.

KnowHy has developed a partly-online training course in the FCH field for technicians with at least 2 years of hands-on experience or a technical diploma/certificate. The course is accessible from home or the workplace in several languages through an interactive e-learning platform providing teaching materials, tutoring and games.

After the on-line lesson, a practical training at demo facilities to experience the acquired knowledge will complement the course. The training lasts 100 hours and is divided between 40 hours of a core module providing an overview on fuel cells and hydrogen fundamentals and 60 hours of a specialisation module to be chosen between the following market roll-out applications selected according to a market research and a survey among industrial stakeholders: Automotive and Material Handling Sector; Hydrogen Production and Handling; Micro Fuel Cells; CHP and microCHP; Fuel Cell based Generators (APU and Backup Power)

The first of the courses starts in September 2016. The modules are free to enrol in. To learn more and register, click through here.
