Examine the latest technological and operational developments in the missiles market...

Keeping up to date with the latest developments within the rapidly changing missile market takes up valuable resources. At SMi’s forthcoming 4th Annual Global Missiles Summit we have done the hard work for you. We have selected key international industry experts to present case studies on the issues that matter to you. Topics to be addressed include:

· Policy & doctrine · Operational requirements · Programs · Warheads and lethality issues · Propulsion technologies · Software · Missile aerodynamics · Sensor & seeker systems · Payloads & delivery systems · Laser guidance · Moving target engagement · Active protection systems

Furthermore with representatives from the major players in this industry, this event will meet all your networking requirements in just three days. And with our lunches promoting open debate, you will have the perfect opportunity to build these relationships and discuss market developments and potential.

So, what have previous delegates said:

“The most complete line up of international missile experts ever seen at one event.” Technical Director, Aviation & Missile Command (USA)

“All speakers knowledgeable! Outstanding. Good networking. Great info and contacts.” Program Manager, EDO Marine & Aircraft Systems

To complement the superb speaker programme, we are also running a half-day interactive post-summit workshop entitled: Air-to-Ground Precision Ordnance Delivery Using GPS/ INS Morning of the 19th October 2001 Workshop Leader: Jim Kusmick, President, Whitney, Bradley and Brown

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

    CPD Certificates

    We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
