Course Description

This is the first of two skills courses which must be mastered in order to complete your Firefighter Level I training. It is comprised of the skills which are the live-fire prerequisites as outlined by NFPA 1403. These skills must be completed prior to a participant going into an interior live-fire training scenario. The materials for ASP602 corresponds to the skill sheets found in the 7th Edition of IFSTA’s Essentials of Firefighting. Please bring your textbook to the skills sessions. 

If you are already a member of a fire department, many if not all of these skills may be completed at your home department. Training must be well documented and approved by a certified instructor / certification coordinator. Whether you choose to complete the skills at your home department or with us at the Brayton Fire Training Field, you will be ready to experience live-fire training for the first time.

Once you complete this course and receive training in the remainder of Firefighter Level I skills, you may be eligible for certification. Please check with the fire certification agency in your area to learn what qualifications are required.

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.
