Introducing the first renewable hydrogen training course in the world

hydrogen technologies training attendees


This is the first Renewable Hydrogen Training Course in the world and the first training course that we uniquely developed for transferring knowledge to you.

Having developed skills and knowledge from the implementation of many hydrogen projects, we have put together this world first course material to help you discover and learn about these technologies.

We have successfully delivered courses to groups from the nuclear industry, communities, farmers, crofters, businessman, national and local governmental figures.
