On-Demand & Accredited Demand Driven Planner Training
Updated 21st May 2020: This course is now only available until 30th June 2020.
With the current global crisis due to the outbreak and spread of Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), supply chain professionals are having to contend with even more complexity and volatility that they did this time last year. During this time of extreme uncertainty and the unprecedented level of travel and social restrictions across the globe, we are pleased to offer the Demand Driven Planner (DDP)™ training program as an On-Demand Self-Study and accredited Certification package for individuals in five languages. This on-demand training package is ideal for this New Normal that we live in. In particular, it will enable your team to continue their personal development in a remote environment allowing them to study and achieve certification status at their own pace wherever they are and whenever they have the time to study. In addition, the full DDP program and exam (normally US$1,350) are being offered at the price of US$650, less a geographically based discount of US$100 – US$200 depending on the participant’s location.
The on-demand self-study package includes:
- Demand Driven Planner (DDP)™ on-demand self-study access and course materials
- Sample exam and solutions
- Two attempts to achieve the Demand Driven Planner Professional (DDPP) certification
- Lifetime access to course videos and materials as they are updated, including the new version of the DDP expected to be released at the end of this year
The on-demand self-study program follows exactly the same curriculum as the 2-day in-person Demand Driven Planner (DDP)™. Consequently, this on-demand package of training + exam provides your planning, purchasing and supply chain team with the skills and knowledge to implement and maintain a DDMRP environment. Designed by the leading authorities on DDMRP at the Demand Driven Institute, the on-demand Demand Driven Planner is comprised of 13 modules of in-depth DDMRP education spread across 7 distinct video sessions each lasting 90 to 120 minutes.
It is important to understand that this training package is provided as an On-Demand offering and therefore all study sessions are provided using recorded media of a DDP online class. Therefore, High Impact Coaching & Strategies will also provide your teams with remote support to clarify concepts if needed.

Achieving Professional Certification
The Demand Driven Planner Professional (DDPP)™ is a professional endorsement certification offered by the Demand Driven Institute, the global authority for Demand Driven education, training, certification and compliance. The DDPP™ is earned by an individual who can apply the Demand Driven concepts, analyze an environment and evaluate an environment using the Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) methodology.
Once an individual has completed the on-demand self-study Demand Driven Training program, the DDPP endorsement is awarded following the successful completion of a 3-hr examination.
