After completion of the online lecture portion of Firefighter Level 1 (ASP601), there are two weeks of face-to-face skills training that must be completed. This is the second of the two skills courses. It is comprised of the remaining Firefighter Level I skills beyond the live-fire prerequisite. The materials for ASP603 corresponds to the skill sheets found in the 7th Edition of IFSTAs Essentials of Firefighting. Please bring your textbook to the skills sessions.
Once you complete this course, you may be eligible for certification. Please check with the fire certification agency in your area to learn what qualifications are required.
If you are already a member of a fire department and you have completed the live-fire prerequisite objectives, you may skip ASP602 and with proper documentation, enroll directly into ASP603. Training must be well documented and approved by a certified instructor / certification coordinator.
This course is not a Pro Board certification and cannot be converted to Pro Board. It also does not directly lead to IFSAC or TCFP certification.

New Annual Schools Path toward Firefighter I and II Certification
- Option A – New firefighters or those with limited training opportunities.
- Option B and B2 – Firefighters with some training but not enough to complete FFI. They get to skip ASP602 if they have documented completion of the live-fire prerequisites per NFPA 1403. The difference between B & B2 is when ASP604/605 are taken (spring/summer vs fall/winter).
- Option C – Firefighters who have completed the Firefighting Phases (1 3) from previous Annual Schools or have already finished Firefighter Level 1.
We have streamlined the process for payment via Texas A&M Forest Service funding (H.B. 2604 or TIFMAS Grant Assistance Program). Before you register for a course, you must attain approval from the Texas A&M Forest Service for training tuition. On your approval letter there will be a voucher approval number. Each participant approved for tuition grant assistance will need this number.
Register for your course through your TEEX student portal. On the payment section, choose Purchase Order and enter the VFDE number (for example E123456). If your department was approved for multiple participants, each participant up to the maximum approved in the training tuition request may use the same VFDE number. If the total amount due is greater than the total amount allowed by the tuition voucher, the individual/department will be responsible for the difference. You are no longer required to email or fax the approval letter to TEEX/ESTI unless it is specifically requested by TEEX staff.
The PO contact email needs to be either yourself or a responsible person within your organization.
A new data field has been added to the payment process. The Tax ID (Tax Payer ID, EIN or FEIN) will be the number assigned to your organization. The field is required and needs to be in the following format: xx-xxxxxxx.
