Servicing and recharging procedures of kitchen hood and
duct extinguishing systems per NFPA 96, 17 and 17A.
Kitchen System Servicing seminar meets the requirements of NFPA 17,
17A, and 96 pertaining to the service and maintenance of commercial
cooking facilities, hood, duct and appliance fire suppression systems.
The NFPA defines a trained person as one who has undergone the
instructions necessary to perform maintenance and recharge reliably.
The seminar also covers training and testing in one day. The testing
includes questions on the subjects covered as well as hands-on working
on the various system displays. The test demonstrates the person's
ability to perform the service and maintenance, interpret the
manufacturers manuals pertaining to servicing and an understanding of
the NFPA requirements on servicing of pre-engineered Kitchen Fire
Suppression Systems. The passing grade is 75% and 97% of the people who
take this course passed the test. This seminar is offered just about
every other week at various locations throughout the US and Canada.
Class size is limited.
