overview
Between the coast and 200 miles offshore there is an awful lot of water that requires comprehensive management if a Nation is to obtain the most from its Economic Exclusion Zone (EEZ). Fundamental to successful EEZ management is the ability to monitor activity over a vast area and take effective policing action when required.

Air and sea borne sensors, patrol and enforcement assets, own and other Government agencies all form part of the management capability. At the heart of this is a Command and Control function based on an information system capable of operating with the widely disparate authorities likely to be involved in EEZ management. Fishery protection, sea bed mining, oil exploration and the prevention of smuggling, piracy, illegal immigration and money laundering are but a few of the activities that may be embraced by EEZ concerns.

On June 25, 2002, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Transportation Michael Jackson, joined by U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Thomas H. Collins, announced the award of the largest acquisition in the history of the Coast Guard. The Integrated Deepwater System (IDS) contract was awarded to Integrated Coast Guard Systems (ICGS), a joint venture established by Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. The Deepwater contract has the potential to extend up to 30 years, with an approximate value of $17 billion.

Many of the Coast Guard's most critical missions - countering terrorist threats, rescuing mariners in distress, catching drug smugglers, stopping illegal migrants, and protecting the marine environment - demand forces that are able to operate effectively across a broad geographic spectrum, from overseas operating areas to US Exclusive Economic Zone, coastal, and port regions. The Coast Guard's Deepwater cutters and aircraft are designed to operate throughout these diverse environments. They comprise the first line of the Service's layered defense against threats to America's homeland and maritime security.

This conference will examine the legalities, policies and capabilities associated with a nation upholding its Exclusive Economic Zones, including their requirements for surveillance, policing, management and enforcement of their rights and duties.

Furthermore the Conference looks also at the Deepwater Program of the United States Coast Guard. The Deepwater Programme is the largest acquisition programme in the history of the Coast Guard and will develop, acquire and sustain an affordable integrated system of surface, air, command and control and logistics assets that serve American’s maritime safety and security needs.

This conference will provide delegates with a comprehensive overview of the definitions, benefits, responsibilities, obligations and necessary infrastructure in line with a nations commitment to UNCLOS, the United Nations Convention on the Law if the Sea, and how these relate to the different instruments of government. This includes the relationship between secular, civil, para-military and military agencies and ministries.

    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.
