Course Description

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 IFSTA’s Essentials of Firefighting.

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.

Prerequisites

Successful completion of ASP601 AND ASP602 NFPA Structural Firefighter I Skills – Live-Fire Prerequisite.

OR

ASP601 and documented completion of all live-fire prerequisite objectives.

If you are a member of the State Firefighters’ and Fire Marshals’ Association of Texas, have your Certification Coordinator take a screen shot of your “My Certifications” page. It needs to show your name along with the line that reads “1001: Live Fire Prerequisite” with either an “active” status or “100% complete.” Save the screen shot as a PDF so you can upload it when prompted when enrolling for this course.

Proof of prerequisites in the form of certificates of completion should be uploaded into your student portal after registration. At the end of registration, you will see a blue arrow icon beside your course to upload your prerequisite documentation. Participants that do not have the required prerequisites will be removed from the course.

Resources

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.
