SMi are proud to announce the 20th annual Military Airlift and Air-to-Air Refuelling conference and exhibition will be hosted in Lisbon from the 3rd – 4th December 2019, with an additional post-conference site visit on the 5th December.
 

Developing on the 2018 edition, this year’s conference remains the definitive calendar date for the international air mobility and airlift community – providing crucial updates across the heavy & tactical airlift, rotary wing and AAR sectors.

As the world has globalised, the need to deploy and sustain forces from the air remains a mission critical enabler. Similarly, the utility of maintaining airpower through effective AAR has repeatedly demonstrated in recent NATO-led operations, including Operation Inherent Resolve and Operation Shader across Syria.

Delivering this capability, as asset costs rise, and budgets shrink remains a key theme for this year’s meeting – as pooling and sharing efforts continue to drive pan-European cooperation. Similarly, integrating commercial solutions into the combined effort and where this can provide the lowest opportunity cost continues to be explored.

With over 120 attendees, 2 drinks receptions, 4 hours of networking and an exclusive site visit to Pratica di Mare Airbase last year – the Military Airlift and Air-Air Refuelling Conference essential platform for military and industry to share comprehensive discussions on the future of this capability.
 

  • Listen to briefings from key allied partners across the strategic and tactical airlift sectors and develop an understanding of programme developments and future requirements
  • Refined focus on the air-to-air refuelling market and how this critical enabler provides mission support
  • Industry presentations from key commercial partners across the domain including Embraer, Leonardo, Airbus and TLD
  • Learn about key topics within the Military Airlift and AAR community including rotary wing AAR and airlift, resource pooling efforts, humanitarian and disaster relief airlift and rapid response and delivery capability

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.
