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 Assistant 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
A primary benefit of our courses is that our courses are very flexible and permits us to adapt to current events. This allows us to remain at the cutting edge of fire service management training
Our instructors are leaders in the field in their area of expertise and have served in from the smallest towns to the biggest cities throughout the country. Most hold, or have held high ranking positions within the fire service.
The wealth of knowledge is invaluable for those looking to advance their careers within the fire service.
