overview

Now in its second successful year, MilSatCom Latin America 2015 is the only regional meeting place for military satellite communications specialists and all those responsible for optimising security and surveillance of national and air space and key domestic assets. With satellites still providing the greatest tactical advantage for current and future operations, many nations are focused on advancing their SATCOM capability; some through the acquisition and launch of national satellite programs and others through the data provided by the key satellite technology providers.

.
 

MilSatCom Latin America 2015 is designed to break the mold and create an event that will assist the learning and development of SATCOM programme managers and practitioners through briefings, panel sessions and focused discussion groups. Unlike other events, we strive to deliver real insight and learning experiences through the expertly selected speakers, all who are recommended through our extensive research and consultation that is carried out across the industry.
 

 

Latin America has been a prominent region in advancing its SatCom Capability with countries such as Brazil, Chile and Mexico all either launching or planning to launch domestic satellite programs.  This conference will feature high level military and government briefings from those directly responsible for advancing these satellite capabilities and after our 2014 event, where we had over 100 attendees, this Septembers' event is set to only continue to attract the regions main SatCom protagonists.


• Keynote Briefings from senior officers from Brazil and surrounding Latin American nations
• A unique focus on enhanced military capability through the development and implementation of SATCOM programs
• Briefings on: payload optimisation, cyber security deterrents, overcoming satellite interference, real time data delivery to military operations, power enhancement and capacity increases and bandwidth maximisation
• High level panel discussions featuring technical managers and project engineers from military as well as industry
• Focused discussion groups tackling key challenges facing SATCOM program managers in the region
• SATCOM equipment exhibition showcasing the latest technology
• Informal networking time factored in so you can gather insight from peers and colleagues also shaping and influencing regional SATCOM programmes 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.

    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
