    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.
