SMi Group are proud to announce that the second Military PNT conference will convene on 17th – 18th May 2021 to provide an in-depth view of military PNT technology and assess the future of PNT for the Warfighter.

GPS satellite navigation is currently essential to almost all military operations. From precision targeting for missiles to situational awareness and navigation for dismounted infantry, the loss of GPS is a catastrophic scenario in modern military operations. As both near-peer and asymmetric adversaries strengthen their EW and offensive cyber capabilities, this scenario is becoming less a possibility and more a certainty in future conflict.

To preserve effective PNT, it is critical that military and industry work together to provide new solutions and technology. The urgency is reflected by vastly increased investment in PNT technology across the world; by 2024, the PNT industry is expected to grow to $23 billion. There is a clear and pressing need for military decision-makers, industry partners and thought leaders to come together and discuss the future of military PNT.
 

Military PNT 2021 is the perfect occasion to hear from the most informed and renowned experts in the field of PNT. Join the two-day conference and benefit from insights delivered by first-class scientists, researchers, academics and senior military figures.

  • Military briefings from the US DoD comprehensively covering present and future of US PNT
  • Hear about a diverse array of topics including PNT resilience, multi-sensor integration and Warfighter navigation requirements
  • Understand how the UK’s Positioning, Navigation and Timings landscape will look in a post-Galileo environment
  • Engage with senior military and industry leaders to understand the Warfighter’s needs for operating in degraded and denied environments with resilient PNT and explore capabilities showcased within a dedicated exhibition hall.

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.
