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. 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.

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.

New Annual Schools Path toward Firefighter I and II Certification
Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service in cooperation with the Texas A&M Forest Service is aligning the payment process for annual schools with all other requests for tuition assistance under the House Bill 2604 program and TIFMAS training grants. Vouchers or grant approval numbers will no longer be accepted as purchase order agreements.
The process will follow the typical Application – Approval – Registration – Training/Certification – Reimbursement pattern.
