Kitchen System Servicing

Servicing and recharging procedures of kitchen hood and duct extinguishing systems per NFPA 96, 17 and 17A.

FPC's 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.
