Approved For Release 2001/04/02 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001500110032-0 IAGPC-G 23 November 1982 Dr. Harold E. Puthoff SRI International 333 Ravenswood Ave Menlo Park, CA 94025 Dear Hal, As I mentioned to Jim last week and to you yeste;r,day, I am exploring the possibility of having people continue in the training program. Two key items of information I need are: The content and a description of the training and its cost. The Jan 82 memo that Jim provided me included a description of the content of stage I. It was extremely helpful in getting started. Similar information about the following stages especially stage 3 would help answer some questions now being posed e.g., Where doe s this fit into a training program? What does this training consist of? How long does it take? How much is class- room lecture vs practical exercise? What is required of the student during the training? What criteria will be used to judge the student?s performance? What is the nteasu.re of training success? As to cost information, the money this year is nowhere near that available in previous years. In coming up with'a FY 83 bare bones budget, I used the costs forcast in the FY 82 mid-year review to cover possible FY 83 training. I am concerned that that amount ray now only cover a single stage. For my planning, what are current training costs? What if a student completes a training stage sooner or extends beyond the projected time? Also if a second student starts in a lower stage, how would that be handled? I anticipate the answers to these question3 will provide me the information necessary to obtain a favorable decision on future training. If there is any thing else that you wish to add, please do so. Hoping to hear from you soon. Sincerely, ROBERT J. JACHIM LTC, t4I Approved For Release 2001/04/02 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001500110032-0
