With a growing demand for flexible, protected, and interoperable CIS capabilities, this year’s event will look at some of the key drivers causing these requirements and discuss the current challenges for both the solution providers and end users of deployable comms.


As well as hearing about how solutions such as SatCom on the Move and tactical comms can provide the war fighter with flexible and continuous connectivity anywhere and at any time, the critical threat of cyber has intensified the importance of ensuring secure communications can be effectively operated in contested environments.

As well as strong support from the host nation, there will also be neighbouring and regional speakers providing updates on tactical CIS capabilities, programmes and requirements for the warfighter.


WIth over 100 attendees expected, you can expect to meet the following:


• Heads of CIS
• Tactical Communications Programme Managers
• Heads of J6
• Heads of Signals
• Heads of Communications
 

• Hear from key military and government representatives from the CEE region as well as leading CIS experts from Western Europe to learn how you can best adapt your solutions
• Discuss the future of tactical CIS capabilities with a focus on interoperability, contested comms and SatCom on the Move to ensure continuous connectivity in the most remote locations
• Hear about the latest solutions that can cost-efficiently fulfil capability gaps
• Assess the impact of cyber in deployable communications and analyse how best to combat the growing threat

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.

CPD Certificates

We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
