SMi proudly presents its 6th annual Military Airlift: Rapid Reaction and Tanker Operations conference. Taking place in the first week of December and following on from sell-out events in Rome in 2007, Seville in 2008 and Frankfurt in 2009, Military Airlift 2010 will once again bring together an impressive line up of senior military officers, key policy makers, leading aircraft manufacture and airlift charter companies.

This year the conference will feature a special focus on airlift operations ranging from recent humanitarian engagements in Haiti to tactical airlift in Afghanistan. Attend the conference and hear the latest from EU and NATO airlift agencies on their efforts to achieve greater levels of collaboration and cooperation.

Incorporating a tanker theme, the conference will also feature case studies from MRTT and tanker pilots currently active in Afghanistan, as well as an impartial update on the USAF KC-X programme.

Papa Air Base - 8th December  

Military Airlift Site Visit

 On the morning of the 8th December delegates will have the opportunity to visit Papa Air Base, Hungary.

In November 2007 Papa was selected to host 3 NATO C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft, now under the operational command of the newly established Heavy Airlift Wing (HAW). Papa Air Base is located close to the Northern edge of the Bakony Hills in Veszprem County, Hungary. Launched in 2009, the HAW is an integral part of the Strategic Airlift Consortium (SAC), created in September 2006 to serve the strategic airlift requirements of members, in addition to fulfilling a support role for a variety of NATO, EU and UN missions.

The Site Visit is free to all delegates. Coach transport will be available; numbers are limited.

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
