SMi’s 10th annual Gas Storage and Transmissions conference returns to London June 2016! There is much debate and discussion around the European and UK Gas market where demand has struggled to keep up with storage capacity, however, new approaches to regulation and changing stances of many European governments combined with new infrastructure projects signal an exciting and profitable climate for this sector. Therefore, it is once again vital that the industry come together to discuss how to move forward as a collective, overcome any existing concerns and utilise the commercial opportunities that the gas storage and transmissions sector offers. Join us in London to hear about the latest in legislation as we discuss the role that regulators must play in rejuvenating this dynamic market. We will also explore the latest and future infrastructural developments across Europe, including the Turkish, Nord and South Streams and forthcoming Nord Stream 2 project. We will assess whether diversifying gas supply routes and new interconnector projects can meet the growing need for natural gas imports in Europe as production in the North Sea continues to fall. Join key decision makers from Europe’s biggest storage operators to discuss the role storage and transmission can play in safeguarding the EU's security of energy supply.

SMi’s 10th annual Gas Storage and Transmissions conference will explore how the changing landscape of the energy industry will impact this sector. We will be looking at the current state of the European Gas market and security of supply, gas transmission and how gas storage will contribute to future demand, infrastructure and investment challenges. These are just some of the questions and discussions that will be had at SMi’s 10th annual Gas Storage and Transmission Conference, can you afford to miss out?
 

SMi’s 10th Annual Gas Storage and Transmission conference is a must attend conference for 2016. The 2-day conference will provide delegates with the perfect opportunity to gain a complete overview of the European and UK markets both in the short and long term future. As this is our 10th annual year, we will recognise this landmark by expanding on previous years and evaluating the new direction of the market and emerging opportunities available. Innovative, topics of discussion including an assessment of the potential in new markets such as North Africa are complimented by fresh ideas on new infrastructure projects, and a shifting regulatory stance.

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.
