The Leadership Skills track and the Management Skills track will each consist of six courses and offer a certificate of completion for each course and for each of the two tracks. Those planners completing all twelve courses in the Leadership and Management tracks will receive certification as a Certified Planning Manager.

PPDI courses are offered and will be instructed by Lisa J. Walker, P.G., AICP (previously Hollingsworth) and Clarence W. Walker. Lisa has over 20 years of professional planning, plan implementation, management, consulting, and instructional experience, and has most recently won several awards for her production of an environmental documentary that has been aired repeatedly on public television.
