 Military Airlift: Rapid Reaction and Tanker Operations Asia Pacific 2012 is the perfect opportunity to meet with the regional airlift community and discuss current requirements and evaluate recent airlifter operations. The conference and exhibition will be held on the 9th and 10th July in Singapore and is the only event where this community can meet together to discuss the regions capabilities and requirements. Running parallel next to the conference will be a vibrant exhibition that will allow vendors to showcase their solutions and technologies for airlifting.

 

 Military Airlifting has seen steady growth in the Asia-Pacific region due to the increase in natural disasters which have happened in the last couple of years. Airlifting has been used during the Christchurch Earthquake, Queensland Floods, Tsunami 2004, and Tsunami 2011 in Japan, Earthquakes in China and most recently during the Thailand Floods in November 2011. There is a growing need for regional Air Forces to improve there current airlifting capabilites with the latest modern military airlifters. The airlifters being used by the armed forces at present are becoming aging and not up to the requirements needed to support tactical and strategic operations.

 

With leading figures delivering inovative presentations SMi's Military Airlift Asia Pacific is the perfect opportunity to discuss current airlifting capabilities and operations that are happening across Asia-Pacific.

    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.
