overview
The demand for airspace use from both civil and military users has increased dramatically both in Europe and globally over the past 20-30 years. However existing airspace structures, especially in Europe are complex and disparate between both military and civil users and between different countries. Moreover the military and civil airspace users have largely differing requirements, both of which need to be met. The Military must be able to train its pilots and test their aircraft and weapons systems in order to meet their defence requirements. Whereas civil airspace is important to national economies and therefore airlines desire to use the shortest possible route to save fuel,in order to be competitive and environmentally friendly. Neither of these objectives can be met in Europe and in may cases globally without creating interoperability and co-ordination / co-operation between organisations, countries and systems. If this does not occur airspace capacity will not be maximised or run effectively.

This Conference will provide you with all the information that you need to meet the new international requirements for Effective Airspace Management.

Attending this event will give you an insider's perspective on the new airspace objectives, scope and main concepts being rolled out between now and the end of 2015.

If you only attend one Airspace forum this year, this is certainly the one for your diary!

The programme includes the very latest policy updates from the key decision makers in:
  • EUROCONTROL
  • NATO HQ and NATO Air Command and Control Management Systems Agency (NACMA)
  • European Parliament and the European Commission
  • American, German and Dutch Air Forces
  • Hungarian Air Navigation Services
  • UK's CAA and National Air Traffic Services
  • German Air Navigation Services
  • Switzerland's single service provider 'Skyguide'
  • NAVCanada

This event also covers the full range of national and international implementation measures currently underway.

Leading experts from the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Hungary will all present country-specific case studies on national implementation and related ATC systems.

You will learn key lessons in how to restructure your own national airspace management to meet both military/civil needs and the new European regulatory requirements.

You will learn how to:
  1. Meet both military and civil airspace requirements in Europe
  2. Comply with new legal regulations and the impementation of the new EU initiatives
  3. Ensure safer and more effective use of the Single European Sky Initiative
  4. Review new European civil/military airspace management integration programmes
  5. Identify new NATO airspace management requirements
  6. Overcome the technical and operational challenges that lay ahead
  7. Assess new technological developments in Mode S, GNSS and CNS/ATM simulation
  8. Improve NATO airspace security and ATM interoperability among NATO and it's partners
  9. Discuss the latest thinking in airspace design and airspace management

    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.
