artisan2Business Report writes that the Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority (Chieta) will lead in the establishment of a Centre of Specialisation for Green Hydrogen Skills to close the hydrogen skills gap and ensure SA has the skills to grow the hydrogen economy.

This was announced after the release last week of a groundbreaking research report mapping the way forward for “Identification of Skills Needs for the Hydrogen Economy“ by the Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology, Blade Nzimande. Chieta CEO Yershen Pillay said on Thursday that they would be collaborating with the Mining Qualification Authority (MQA) and Transport Education Training Authority (TETA) to establish the multimillion-dollar centre by next year. He noted that the research report underscored the importance of proactive skills development to support SA’s transition to a green hydrogen economy. “By identifying skills needs and collaborating with stakeholders, we aim to ensure that our workforce is adequately equipped to seize the opportunities presented by green hydrogen,” Pillay pointed out. The Chemical Sector Education and Training Authority also welcomed the release of the report, which identified Setas as central to the growth of the green hydrogen economy.
