SAE Media Group is delighted to announce the 8th annual UAV Technology conference, taking place on the 25th and 26th September 2023.

Uncrewed aerial systems have become one of the most researched and pursued military technologies from the past decade and the market for drones and UAVs has grown exponentially. Their capabilities have advanced with the shifting of operational requirements, whether it be with ISR assets for long range reconnaissance missions, soldier-born battlefield awareness mini UAS or for remotely piloted combat drones for precision strikes. Demand for these indispensable capabilities has led to further development of their technical abilities.


UAVs are paving the way for the future of aerial warfare and this year's conference is where you can witness it all happen. UAV Technology 2023 is the leading international forum dedicated towards the development of uncrewed aerial systems, allowing for essential dialogue between military, industry and academia.

The conference will include presentations ranging from multi-national UAV development programmes, certification and regulation, Counter UAS/UAV technology, Stealth technology, the latest in drone R&D and future force design using these hi-tech military assets. We at SAE Media Group, look forward to welcoming the global UAV community to this leading conference to maintain dialogue, share ground-breaking ideas and furthering the concept of modern warfare.
 

UAV Technology 2023 is the foremost global meeting point for the UAV community. At this conference, you will hear from international UAV programme managers, leading industry experts and senior military officers using RPAS and uncrewed aerial vehicles, and learn about the future vision for uncrewed capability development. Join us for a two-day conference where you will hear about the latest procurement acquisition programmes, technological developments from industry and academia, and leave with a plan for your country's future UAV platform.

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, SAE Media 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.
