Following the success of previous courses, EVHA is offering Grease Hygiene Technician training again in 2020.
The training caters for the fastest-growing part of the European duct cleaning industry - kitchen extract duct cleaning.
There is increasing demand from insurance companies, landlords and hospitality industry chains such as fast food franchises, hotel groups and professional caterers that kitchen extract duct cleaners must be properly trained and certified
EVHA Grease Hygiene Technician Training
The Grease Hygiene Technician course consists of theory and practical activities and the delegates will be assessed on both.
It is based on the highly successful BESA TR/19 training which has seen more than 620 delegates receive training and qualification. It is adapted to pan-European requirements - largely by referring to the European Norm EN15780 'Ductwork. Cleanliness of Ventilation Systems', which is expected to be revised in 2019 to include kitchen extract systems.
The theory and practical exercises include:-
Safe working practices
The principles of kitchen grease extract systems and associated components

Examination & Accreditation
EVHA will provide a Certificate of Competence for candidates who successfully pass the Final Assessment. This comprises a multiple choice examination, practical assessment & professional discussion.
The Certificate of Competence is backed by BESA Training accreditation. This can be traced back to basic principles and is supervised by government, which means that the training content, facilities and, critically, the examination process has been rigorously screened by a competent, independent authority. In turn, this means that the qualification has real weight and value for your customers.
