CPD at IMBC In mid-January of next year several hundred marina industry professionals will gather in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for the eighteenth annual Association of Marina Industries (AMI) International Marina & Boatyard Conference (IMBC). AMI chair, Joe Riley CMM, comments: “This year we have made some enhancements to our educational agenda to provide sessions that our members are asking for…we are providing more professional development and leadership sessions. These topics are focused on refining leadership skills and mentoring and coaching the next generation leader, both topics are critical to the sustainability of our industry.” A vital element of IMBC is thus CPD; the acronym for Continuing Professional Development. In an ideal world, employers set up training programmes, seminars, conference commitments, specialist courses, mentoring programmes etc. for the benefit of staff, whether they are new recruits, mid or long term employees. Many companies subscribe to this ideal but there is a growing trend to shift the onus of responsibility from the employer to the employee. Many a guru will tell the first-time jobber that she or he is on their own when it comes to reaching out, broadening the scope of opportunities, learning more and engaging better. Reward for the effort lies in more confidence, better career prospects and a more fulfilling business life. According to Vivian Kloosterman, founder of online learning course specialists Continuing Professional Development*, CPD is important “because it ensures you continue to be competent in your profession. It is an ongoing process and continues throughout a professional’s career.” It ensures your capabilities keep pace with the current standards of others in the same field; maintains and enhances the knowledge and skills you need to deliver a professional service; helps you continue to make a meaningful contribution to your team; and helps you stay ‘interesting’ and ‘interested’. Kloosterman notes: “Sometimes it is mandated by professional organisations or required by codes of conduct or codes of ethics. But at its core it is a personal responsibility of professionals to keep their knowledge and skills current so they can deliver the high quality of service that safeguards the public and meets the expectations of customers and the requirements of their profession.” She also adds that it “should be engaging and fun, too.” The modern workplace loves acronyms and abbreviations, and it’s an ongoing learning exercise to keep up with them. But don’t gloss over CPD in this everevolving language and plan your next ‘development’ experience now. If you’re intending to boost your CPD at IMBC, B2B publications are important information sources so come and meet the MW team on booth 116. If you’re asking WIIFM? The answer is ROI. H2CUS. EOM!
