Special Note: Each student must log on EDI’s website to view the speakers’ recorded presentations. Some presenters (in live presentations) will allow you an opportunity to ask questions. 

Additionally, we know that we must adjust our business model to include on campus courses and virtual online classes as well as to include Hybrid type at Dillard University.  We enjoy and appreciate the opportunity to serve you throughout your fire service careers.
