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.
Moving past our 27 year mark, EDI continues to strive to prepare Firefighters through Chiefs with the skills necessary to successfully move through the ranks in the fire service. There are still many who have not heard of EDI and could benefit greatly from attending. Many graduates from various backgrounds have already benefited from the training received at The Carl Holmes Executive Development Institute.
