﹣ Director, Federal Training Center


The staff of LEAD Training are exceptional, all professionals. In our project with a large oil company they were able to identify the needs of our clients, and then transform the information into an engaging learning experience. They used their step-by-step process to create a product I was proud to be associated with.

﹣Ed K. – Oklahoma State University


I’m about to start my eleventh year as Chief. I took this course to see what I didn’t know when I was appointed to serve as my hometown’s fire chief after being away from home for a period of time. This is truly a course I wished was available eleven years ago. It hit on all the fundamental core practices we use as Chiefs. I applaud the group of people that developed this, very well done.

Chief 101 Course Participant


Dr. Halcomb and her team are by far the most honest, diligent, and talented professionals I have had the pleasure of working alongside!
