Train- ing Courses 1. 1 met with Dr. Wheelon anal n Friday, 8 November 25X1 to determine what the Executive Director had in mind by subject Action Memorandum. Dr. Wheelon'a reaction was expressed by` think Kirk served the ball in the wrong court. " Apparently Dr. heelon meant that "the analysts with whom he had been dealing" we not in the Agency but were external to the Agency, most of them ih the Defense Department. Dr. Wheelon further said that he had no imm+e late train- ing requirements to levy on the Office of Training but would.edvise us if such requirements materialize in the future. 2. For your information we just completed the third running of a course entitled "Intelligence Research Techniques (OSI)." This is a 160-hour course for OSI analysts with an enrollment of approximately 12 people per course. As far as I know this course meets the OSI requirements for such training.
