Development and Delivery of a Commercial Driver Hydrogen Awareness Course

The objective of this project was to develop instructional materials for and to conduct one pilot training class on hydrogen hazard awareness for drivers of commercial vehicles using hydrogen fuel. Instructional materials were developed from the instructional design guide for use in classroom training. These materials included an instructor's handbook, a student's handbook, PowerPoint presentation slides, charts, film or video clips, hands-on exercises, and a combustible gas detector. The materials were used to conduct a pilot training class at a Port of Los Angeles drayage truck fleet operator. The Port of Los Angeles plans to deploy tractors using hydrogen fuel cell range extenders to recharge electric batteries in order to reduce emissions and maximize deployment of the tractors without having to cease operations for charging of batteries.
