This advanced firefighting course is a combination of problem-solving classroom discussion and intensive hands-on firefighting evolutions to teach participants how to confine, control, and extinguish fires encountered in both urban and rural municipal settings. Tactical discussions and field operation exercises address response considerations and progressive techniques for unique low frequency, high risk firefighting scenarios (e.g., fires involving compressed gases, flammable liquids, below grade, pipeline, aircraft, and rail emergencies).
Participant needs to be Firefighter I and Firefighter II

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.
The full rate will be applied after the early-bird registration deadline.
