Abstract

Within the scope of the HyResponse project (www.hyreponse.eu) the development of aspecialised training programme is currently underway. Utilizing an andragogy approach toteaching, distance learning is mixed with classroom instructors-led activities, while hands-ontraining on a full-scale simulator is coupled with an innovative virtual reality basedexperience. Although the course is dedicated mainly to first responders, provision has beenmade to incorporate not only simple table-top and drill exercises but also full-scale traininginvolving all functional emergency response organisations at multi-agency cooperationlevel. The developed curriculum includes basics of hydrogen safety, first responders' proceduresand incident management expectations.
