overview
In the modern 21st century battlefield, air mobility is playing an increasingly important role. Military airlift and tankers have supported crises and humanitarian efforts around the world. The effective application of non-lethal air power indicates that air mobility is an international asset of growing importance for responding to emergencies and protecting national interests around the globe.

Military Airlift and Tankers 2003 will address all aspects of Airlift and Tankers in the modern battlefield. As well as looking at how the Armed Forces will evolve, the conference will also give an insight into country specific requirements, doctrine, programmes and new technologies being developed for military airlift and tankers.

Air transport operations in the deployment of military forces have acquired an increasingly important role during the past few decades on both the strategic and tactical level. Air transport could be the quick answer that could be essential when there is a need for the timely employment of military forces to prevent or defeat an aggression.

This conference will consider governmental and military policy and doctrine and country specific acquisition plans looking at how a country operates its projects. The conference will also address major issues for the specific needs of military airlift and tanker equipment, equipment capabilities, impact of technology, future acquisition strategies for airlift and tankers and technology development.

A unique opportunity to learn from leading military and industry experts including:
· Brigadier General Ted Bowlds, Programme Executive Office, Aircraft and Trainers, US Air Force
· Group Captain Stephen Bucholtz, Officer Commanding No. 84 Wing, Royal Australian Air Force
· Colonel Chris Krisinger, Chief, Doctrine & Policy Division, Plans & Programs Directorate, HQ Air Mobility Command (HQ AMC), US Air Force

    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.
