This course will run in 2 hour sessions over 5 days, from 11am-1pm AEST, 8-12 February 2021.  The training delivers a broad but detailed overview of hydrogen and its use as an energy carrier. Attendees will develop a broad understanding of the opportunities and challenges with hydrogen and develop the competence to make technical and economic comparisons between different hydrogen technologies.

Attendees will receive a digital copy of the course materials as well as a certificate of attendance.
