The Carl Holmes Executive Development Institute was born out of the effort to address the problem of African Americans in the fire service being denied the opportunity to receive cutting edge management training. The concept proposed by Carl Holmes, then Chief of the Oklahoma City Fire Department, was to have African American instructors deliver course material in the area of their expertise or current area of management within the fire service.
Our Instructors consists of well respected Leaders throughout fire service.
The goal of our instructors is to effectively train, educate, motivate, and provide the resources and programs that will help EDI students succeed in their efforts in becoming Chiefs of Fire Departments, Chief Officers, and Company Officers within their various organizations.
Departments and Agencies are now able to sponsor tuitions for multiple members at the same time. Just add fields, enter the minimal information, submit and checkout. We will take care of the rest.
Each year the Carl Holmes Leadership team will award at least one scholarship for EDI; which includes tuition, room and board. Students who complete and submit the application as required will then enter into a selection process. After reviewing all applications the Leadership Team will make their final selection based on hardship. Additionally, when awarded, student(s) are responsible for their own transportation to and from Dillard University in New Orleans, LA where our Institute is currently located
Our mobile app practically puts the website in your hand. The "blog" on the mobile app is designed to get important information about keep EDI and its members as it becomes available; no more waiting on the newsletters
