overview
With the increasing prevalence of joint defence assets in the littoral battlespace and the need to support force projection from the sea to the land, this international event is aimed at examining the latest developments in naval land attack weapon systems. Owing to the demands of engaging land targets in emerging combat scenarios, the need for effectively integrated weapon systems and improved targeting becomes a crucial operational requirement.

By assembling an international panel of expert speakers, this conference will provide you with an excellent insight into the critical ongoing naval land attack weapon system developments and ensure that you are strategically placed to maximise their operational and commercial potential.

Key presentations include:

‘THE NEED FOR LAND ATTACK’ Commodore Fabian Hiscock OBE, Assistant Chief of Staff (Warfare), CINCFLEET

‘SUBMARINE LAND ATTACK’ Commodore Nick Harris MBE, Deputy Flag Officer Submarines, Royal Navy

‘LAND ATTACK IN SUPPORT OF THE EXPEDITIONARY FORCE’ Kirk Dye, Head, Amphibious and Expeditionary Warfare, Dahlgren Dvision , Naval Surface Warfare Center

If you are involved in any aspect of naval weapon system development or operation, whether it be in the Armed Forces, industry or research, you cannot afford to miss this event.

    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.
