Wasserstoff-Weiterbildung: Wählen Sie Ihre optimale Lernform
Our continuing education offering includes various forms and methods of learning to meet the diverse needs of our customers.
1. Classroom training (e.g. hydrogen seminar)
Should the training take place at your company? Then we will be happy to come to you after we have jointly determined the training topic and date.
The face-to-face event is particularly suitable if
- you have already conducted internal training courses on a number of occasions,
- a training room with appropriate equipment is available,
- the training is to be completed during a limited period of time (e.g. one-day seminar),
- a manageable number of employees are to be trained,
- an intensive exchange between participants and instructors is desired.
We are also available for a course. In contrast to a seminar, the course takes place over a longer period of time – i.e. learning in stages.
In e-learning (electronic learning), knowledge is imparted online or via digital media.
E-learning has the advantage that participants can learn independently of location and, as a rule, at flexible times.
This form of knowledge transfer is suitable if
- you want to train employees, sales partners or customers who are located at different sites (in parallel),
- the participants are to acquire the knowledge over a longer period of time in order to apply it in parallel in practice or in everyday work,
- several groups of employees are to be trained on different topics.
We offer various forms of e-learning:
The video courses are a combination of instructional videos (e.g., with exciting hydrogen experiments from our lab), accompanying training materials, and a final exam.
These are self-study courses that participants complete independently without instructor assistance. They are flexible in terms of time and can devote themselves to the course when it suits them best.
To illustrate this, here is a short video from our basic hydrogen course:
In our online courses, we place particular emphasis on the interaction of the participants. Experience has shown that this achieves particularly sustainable learning success.
With this form of training, participants are also flexible in terms of time and can acquire the learning material at their own pace.
Take a look at a course module:
Hydrogen webinar in the virtual classroom:
As with a face-to-face event, the training takes place on a fixed date, but as a location-independent webinar in a virtual room.
The participants and the instructor act via avatars in a virtual 3D learning and working world.
Take a look:
This form of knowledge transfer represents a combination of classroom and online learning.
Example: Teaching takes place by means of our online courses. In a subsequent face-to-face event, there is a consolidation of what has been learned and a direct exchange with the lecturers.
4. Customized trainings
Depending on your individual requirements and preferences, we can put together a customized offer (choice of topics, modules, language, form of knowledge transfer, certification) that allows you, for example, to train your employees, customers or partners efficiently and independently of location. Whether a crash course or comprehensive hydrogen training – we will find the right program for you.
Our maxim: exceed our customers’ expectations.
In our training programs, we place great emphasis on interaction, fun and entertainment in imparting knowledge. Experience has shown that this results in a lasting learning effect for the participants.
It fills us with pride and joy that companies repeatedly make use of our training offerings and cooperate with us on a long-term basis.

Hydrogen - the topic of the future
In conclusion, we would like to remind you once again of the current and future scope of hydrogen technologies:
Hydrogen – more topical than ever!
The climate protection necessitated by climate change is now prioritized by national and international political decision-makers.
In addition, the disputes between Russia and Ukraine have brought the extent of energy imports and dependence on fossil fuels unsparingly to the attention of the general public, e.g., through losses in supply security and painful price developments.
All these circumstances are exerting great pressure on the energy industry. For this reason, hydrogen technologies, which play a decisive role in the future energy supply, are also being pushed.
A global market worth billions
Currently, hydrogen as an energy carrier is used in particular in the chemical industry. Through continuous technology development, it will also be applied to truck, air and ship transport and in other areas of the gas industry.
Hydrogen (H2) will play a key role on the road to decarbonization and in achieving climate targets (e.g. by reducing CO2 emissions).
The German government has already adopted a national hydrogen strategy in 2020, including the goal of gaining market leadership in hydrogen technologies.
In Austria, a national hydrogen strategy was also agreed in 2022.
Hydrogen technology is also being promoted at EU level. But hydrogen is also gaining strongly in importance as an energy carrier internationally.
Many countries around the world, including major economies, have developed their own national hydrogen strategies. This is associated with far-reaching subsidies and grants.
A global market worth billions is opening up, creating new companies and jobs and also offering growth opportunities for established companies.
Be part of it! We support you with our training and consulting services on this forward-looking path.
