During the first Creek of January, 1952, TRC was providing training for : 16 uncleared OSO/OPC students. 20 OSO/OPC students who are cleared. Of this number 11 are in an interim status. This figure would be higher if TRC had space available. 4. The present curriculum for the Reception and Interim Train- ing program has consisted of providing the student with a directed study assignment which is consistent with the requirements of his desk or his future assignment with the Agency. In conjunction with this program TRC has undertaken the preparation of working biblio- graphies, in some cases utilizing student personnel on this project. 5. Contingent upon the provision of adequate space facilities and competent instructor personnel, it is planned that the curricula for both reception and interim training will include a continuation of directed individual study, augmented by a series of lectures, movies, and group discussions on such topics as are not included in the formal courses. This list of topics will include "Understanding of Foreign Peoples," "History of American Intelligence," "The Formulation of American Foreign Policy," "The Intelligence Process," and a one-week instructor training program. 25X1A9A Deputy for Staff Training Rlht INFORMATION Approved For Release 2002/08fl2UfIB-RDR :_00001 A000100120004-9
