SMi’s Helicopter Technology Central and Eastern Europe 2020 conference is returning for its fifth successful year to Prague, Czech Republic on the 20th and 21st May 2020.

Our past Helicopter Technology events have been recognised for excellence by many leading defence forces in both Central and Eastern Europe, and have hosted more senior heads of Air Force and Helicopter Commands than any other helicopter event in Europe.

As Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltic States continue to be a key focus for defence equipment upgrades, the rotary fleet remains a key asset in both domestic and international military operations. Therefore, a focused conference is essential to ensure continued advancement of capability, equipment, and joint interoperability.

This will be a unique opportunity to meet many heads of Air Force and Helicopter Programme Managers.

 

Unlike other events, this conference is a meeting for the military helicopter community across Central and Eastern Europe with a focus on the selection and procurement of new platforms and systems as a means of securing strategic success, whilst putting in place the necessary mechanisms for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of existing legacy platforms.
The Helicopter Technology Central and Eastern Europe 2020 Conference

Helicopter Technology Central and Eastern Europe 2020 will continue to run as the only forum focused specifically on Helicopter technology in the region. HeliTech CEE works as a platform to assist and provide vital knowledge to helicopter program managers and practitioners, as well as technical experts and system integrators. HeliTech CEE differs from other events in the market as it provides a regional focus on Eastern European nations seeking to develop and modernise their fleets, along with NATO and international partners seeking strategic insights into cooperation and interoperability across the region.
 

Helicopter Technology Central and Eastern Europe 2020 Highlights:

  • Keynote briefings from senior officers from Central and Eastern Europe
  • A unique focus on multipurpose helicopter technology and joint force interoperability
  • Briefings on: Rotary Procurement, Platform Upgrades and Modernisation, Interoperability, and National Defence Priorities and Capabilities
  • High level panel discussions featuring technical managers and project engineers from military as well as industry
  • Focused discussion groups tackling key challenges facing helicopter programme managers in the region
  • Informal networking time so you can gather insight from peers and colleagues also shaping and influencing regional helicopter 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.
