overview

Since March 2016 the Central and Eastern European Regions are still a major source of military development and capability building. As allies begin to base troops in the area on a rotational basis it is important to have an efficient logistics mechanism to support them and the host nation forces. As such there needs to be an international standard which all forces need to be brought up to, to allow better integration and provision of services such as engineering, supply chain forecasting, fuel, transport and logistics command and control.

Therefore The SMi Group is proud to announce the second annual Defence Logistics Eastern Europe conference will be held in Prague from the 7th-8th March. Based on the success of the 2016 conference, which was greatly support by members of the Czech Armed Forces; we aim to enable senior logistics and combat service support representatives from military, international and commercial entities to share and learn from one another in a highly focused environment.
 

  • The Czech Republic will once again be a key supporter for the event, building on the success of the 201
  • There will be strong regional representation alongside other key players in logistics from the wider area
  • Senior discussion groups talking about the benefits of international cooperation as part of the development of logistical capabilities
  • Will become more focused and delve into the specific aspects of the logistics system including C2, Infrastructure and transportation among others
  • Will reflect current affairs in the region including NATO troops being relocated to the Baltic Region
  • Informal networking time to talk to peers and colleagues also shaping and influencing Defence Logistics programs today

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.
