    Question Texas' 70-hour introductory firefighter Certification

    Hello all,
    I have been all over the net trying to find a class to obtain my 70 hours to no avail. Was wondering if there was anyone out there that could assist me with this, or point me in the right direction.

    My dept is planning on putting on this course when we finish our new training building, but they are saying it might not be till late next year, and I am wanting to get my cert asap so I am able to participate in alot of the upcoming training sessions, like the one at Texas Eastman in October, but if I do not have the 70 hours, I cannot participate in the live burns.

    THX again for your help on this

    You probably won't find one for Intro, most go right into Basic SFFMA.

    Any Level I or Level II instructor can teach you the hours and sign you off on them through SFFMA as long as there's a test involved. It doesn't have to be a real class, just as long as the hours and proper topics are covered with proper documentation you're good to go.
