The Carl Holmes Executive Development Institute

30th Year

Historical Documentary

– Produced by Ann Hall 

This documentary details the History of Dr. Carl Holmes and the development of EDI



I am truly blessed to be part of the Carl Holmes Executive Development Institute (EDI). When I attended the Institute in 1993, I could have never envisioned that one day I would lead the Chicago fire Department. Also, knowing that Carl applied for this position many years ago and now I am the fruit of his labor of love that he has poured so much into all of us!

Commissioner, Chicago Fire Department

Our plans are to be in New Orleans in June 2022 like we normally are. It seems as though the pandemic is releasing its grip and things are starting to normalize. It is still a waiting game however, and we will keep you updated as we receive more information.
 We are also cognizant that many departments may still  impose restrictions for travel by it’s members. As soon as we get any viable information that would allow us to move forward, will be presenting our plan for the future, which may include hybrid courses.

Registration for EDI 2022 will begin in October.

To extend your growth remotely,  we are offering online classes free of charge for current students. Any new student can register for only $100 with the registration fee to be applied against their 2022 tuition.
