Mixed e-learning and virtual reality pedagogical approach for innovative hydrogen safety training for first responders

Abstract

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