SMi is delighted to announce the return of the 3rd Annual Meter Asset Management Conference, which will be held in London on the 20-21 June 2016. In order to achieve the very ambitious 20-20-20 target, Member States need to consolidate efforts to drive transformation of Europe’s utility networks to become ‘smarter’. Utility companies across Europe face the prospect of meeting the EU’s goal of installing smart meters for a minimum of 80% of consumers by 2020. While utility companies and their customers have already seen significant benefits from smart meters, evolution and roll out programmes need to accelerate and challenges have to be overcome.

The 3rd annual Meter Asset Management conference will offer a comprehensive analysis of the advantages of smart meters, including first-hand successful stories from the utility companies themselves. The conference will dissect the obstacles involved in installing and managing smart meters. It will provide the perfect platform to engage with peers and industry leaders to discuss the best strategies to meet the 202020 target.

Transforming big data into structured information is paramount to the success of smart meters and therefore data, analytics and emerging solutions will remain a top priorities for discussion.
 

  • Hear first hand success stories of some of the biggest smart meter roll outs in the UK
  • Discuss how utility companies can best prepare the workforce to embrace the digital meter
  • Hear from the solution providers how to over come key challenges
  • Listen to what the regulators have to say: an update from Ofgem and Ofwat

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
