Following the great success received last year, SMi's third annual UAV Technology conference returns this September to Prague.

UAVs now more than ever play a pivotal role as a tactical and operational tool for the Armed Forces. SMi's UAV Technology conference will aim to examine and bring solutions to this specific piece of equipment and how to better utilise it during missions. This international symposium will also address the growing need for counter-UAV capabilities now unmanned aerial systems are becoming increasingly accessible both to state and non-state organisations.
 

Moreover, SMi will bring together a community of experts, friends and allies to share information and strengthen relationships. This reflects the growing need of nations, armed forces and industries to come together in order to achieve higher levels of capabilities. Attending this conference will mean to not only have a clear understanding of UAV but to have a chance to be part of a community of leaders and experts that will impact the growth of these technological assets.
 

• The only conference in Europe focused on the procurement and development of UAV and counter-UAS capabilities globally
• Obtain insights from leading nations in the realm of automatic and unmanned technologies such as the US, the UK, and Israel to name just a few
• This region represents a unique part of the world in this moment in time because of the focus on military investments and upgrades
• Become part of the community striving to maximise UAV capabilities while also accurately responding to the threats they pose on national and border security
• Gain a clear understanding of the market and thus and advantage on all the latest developments
 

• Operational commanders in the fields of UAV and C4ISTAR
• Unmanned capability advisors and programme managers
• Technical leaders from industry developing UAV systems and subsystems as well as counter-UAS systems, whether portable or static
• Researchers whose focus is technical innovation to support UAV operations
• Law enforcement and military officials experienced with the management of unmanned and autonomous aerial systems

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.
