SMi Group are proud to announce the return of Humanitarian Airlift And Disaster Response Asia-Pacific which will be taking place in Singapore on 23rd and 24th May 2016 in Singapore. Humanitarian Airlift And Disaster Response Asia-Pacific will be returning for the 3rd installment.

This conference programme will provide updates on capabilities and requirements from national militaries for humanitarian operations, how civil-military cooperation is enhancing the NGO response to regional humanitarian disasters, overcoming the key challenges of humanitarian logistics and innovative technologies to enhance the disaster response. These topics will be addressed by military speakers, civil-military coordinators, regional logistic experts and disaster response organisations, therefore bringing together all key regional stakeholders for disaster response exercises.

With the Royal Malaysian Air Force's recent acquisition of the A400m there is appetite to enhance capabilities and satisfy requirements both through procurement and collaboration across Asia-Pacific and that is what makes this a critical forum for regional air transport and airlift end-users and industry.


 

• Meet and network with industry and military decision makers in the humanitarian and military airlift
• Discuss how to further enhance civil-military cooperation in response to regional humanitarian disasters
• Understand regional airlift capabilities and requirements and how these will be satisfied
• Analyse national airlift investment and identify procurement opportunities
• Debate how the greater regional collaboration can enhance disaster response and disaster management

    Globalisation of market and operations places tremendous pressure on productive management of services and manufacturing enterprises. Services are increasingly important in today's developed economies. Nevertheless, manufacturing plays a major role in national economies and is essential for the survival of service organisations. Considering the globalisation of services and manufacturing, a journal focusing on global perspective of operations management is of paramount importance. IJSOM focuses on new strategies, techniques and technologies for improving productivity and quality in both manufacturing and services.

    Society faces many significant challenges: pollution, poverty, pain, terrorism, crime, greenhouse effect, war, disease, starvation, road accidents, inflation/deflation, unemployment, pornography, great suffering, ignorance, pesticide poisoning, falsehood, etc. It could be argued that scientists have spent too much time on many not-so-urgent issues and too little effort on these challenges. IJSSS addresses the barriers between: social and natural sciences, theory and applications, hard decision models and soft ones, different business disciplines, government and industry, ivory tower and real society.

    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.
