Resolved Question:

I have a VULCAN-GC04S-SINGLE-STACK-Commercial CONVECTION oven, 40,000 BTU's. This is for my cake decorating school, do I need to get a hood system for this? It is a gas oven. There is existing ventilation in the kitchen.

Yes, you do need a vent hood to exhaust the carbon monoxide produced by the burner flame. You should also check with your local building department or fire department to see if a fire retardant system(Ansul) is required.
