Operations.(OSO), and the Office of Policy Coordination (OPC), to acquaint them with the mission, policies, organization, and facilities of TRD. A separate guide for the use of students is bring prepared. It is the intention of TRD to revise this guide from time to time; therefore, suggestions-for revision or addition are solicited from all concerned. These may be forwarded directly to the Research Materials Officer, TRD, Room 109, 25X1A SECRET CONTROL Approved For Release 20008&1 O S8O 7YA000200250001-7 Approved For Release 2000/08/21 : CIA-RDP78-0637OA000200250001-7 SECRET CONTROL 1, S, OFFICIALS ONLY TRAINING DIVISION 2. Mission. To provide instruction in all of the activities charged to OSO and to OFC, in order to qualify personnel for the pla.n.- ning, conduct, and administration of such activities in the field and in headquarters. A related mission is to evaluate the work of students while in training. 3. Instructional Policies. a. The following is the fundamental pattern of the instruc- tion employed by TRD in all training. (1) Orientation. This phase covers general subject background data necessary to prepare the student for the deta,ale(q investigation and study to follow. (2) Indoctrination in principles and methods. This phase is a. continuation of orientation but becomes specific rather than general and is designed to teach the student to think for himself, instead of simply to learn "school solu- tions." (3) Application. In this phase students are given the opportunity to apply in practical laboratory work what they have learned. (4) Evaluation. This is a continuing process on the part of the instructors -throughout all phases of instruction. It is designed to measure the degree of instruction absorbed by each student as well as to analyze the traits and charac- teristics of the student while in training. Evaluation is secondary to instruction but is, nevertheless, a necessary and vital adjunct to the training mission, b. To be effective, training must reflect the actual condi- tions of the operational, planning, and administrative divisions, both in the field and in headquarters. This is necessary to'keep the instruction alive, realistic, and current. It is, conse- quently, of vital interest to TRD that there be close liaison and cooperation between it and the divisions of OSO and OPC.

Though it is a desirable method of instruction, tutorial feasible. training, except for special covert individuals, is not In all training, however, an attempt is made to consider the assignments, backgrounds, problems, and qualifications of stu- dents and to provide as much individual attention an possible. d. TRD attempts to keep the divisions informed of the prog- ress of their students at all times. e. Any student who is found guilty of cheating will at once be dropped from training. Chief Instructors are cautioned to remind students that all, training is conducted on an individual honor system. f. The following procedure for handling guest participants in TRD instruction has been established, (1) General. It is the policy of TRD in the preparation and presentation of instruction that, insofar as possible, advantage will be taken of the special. experience and. abili- ties of persons outside TRD, who may be available as training consultants on specific problems or as guest lecturers, in order that trainees may have the benefit of current field and headquarters practices, procedures, and conditions as well. as of instruction in technical subject; presented by persons directly concerned with current operations. These persons may be staff members of CIA, consultants to CIA, or appro- priately approved personnel employed by other government agen- cies or departments. (2) Recruitment.
