overview

Air space is becoming increasingly complex and dangerous. Smart missile systems, the proliferation of cheap drones and unconventional warfare mean the risk to air and ground forces are high. Therefore, troops require effective ground based sensing, commanding and firing solutions to defend fixed positions, mobile formations and critical nation infrastructure.

 

We are therefore proud to announce that SMi's 2nd Annual Air Missile Defence Technology Conference and Exhibition is returning to Prague on the 24th and 25th of Ocotober 2017. This conference will bring together air defence operators, decision makers and technical experts from both the military and industry. Through national updated and highly focused presentations on key AMD issues such as Ballistic Missile Defence, C-RAM and Aerial Surveillance Fire Control; participants will be able to discuss the risks and the solutions available now and in the future to defeat threats from the air including missiles, rockets, artillery planes and unmanned aerial vehicles.

 

  • National updates from operators at the heart of Air Missile Defence Technology
  • Presentations from leading engineers from the industry
  • Exploring enhanced cooperation at the regional and international level to deal with ballistic and aerial threats
  • Will cover the full spectrum of air defence: from detection and surveillance to kinetic and non-kinetic counter measures
     
  • Head of Ground Based Air Defence (GBAD) Commands
  • Chief of Integrated Air and Missile Defence

    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.
