Course Description

This course is designed to continue your education in the American fire service. It is the first of two courses that cover the objectives set forth in NFPA 1001 (2019 edition) for Firefighter Level II. This online component is to be completed by using a computer, textbook, and online supplemental material. It consists of reading assignments, online knowledge-building activities, videos, chapter quizzes and tests. The online lecture portion for Firefighter II may be completed at your own pace for up to 12 weeks. Time starts when registration is complete; NOT when you first log in to the course. Access to the course is through your TEEX Student Portal account.

Materials for ASP604 corresponds to the 7th Edition of IFSTA’s Essentials of Firefighting.

The online component is just the beginning. There are many skills which must be mastered in order to complete your firefighter level II training. Firefighter Level II skills (ASP605) is a week of face-to-face hands-on field-application training. You will put your online learning into practice by participating in field exercises and scenarios.

Once you complete this course and receive training in all associated skills, you may be eligible for 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.

The online courses are now available year-round!
