DR J oved For Release 2001/04/02 : CIA-RDP96-00788R0015001100344 MEMO TO Hal FROM. I.Swann Subject: Stage 1 training completions (Preliminary report) All four client-selected trainees who had embarked on S-1 at the beginning of the year, finished S-1 on or about July 20, 1984. The greater part of the training took place at the New York office. Each of the trainees achieved competence in learning the technicalities of S-l. The training was enthisiastically received. Each wished to go on to S-2, which, at this writing, has already commenced. In terms of the quantity of simulated sites that were necessary for each trainee to achieve S-1, The following t$E chart illustrates the number of simulated sites that were necessary for each trainee to achieve S-1: Si S-1, phase one S-1, pase two TOTAL 69 ~5 PS 48 48 I/ 87 ED 49 49 99 Total simulated site sessions The large overal count of necessary simulated training sites is somewhat in excels of what we expected.

This time requirement was based upon the work of five previous trainees in the original prototype project, which was terminated in November 1983. The amount of simulated sites necessary for these five to complete S-1 is as follows: S-1, phase one S-i, phase 2 Total MA 35 16 51 JT 29 18 47 HP 15 28 43 JV 48 27 75 Total simulated site sessions 216 In addition to these five prototype trainees above, our estimation of time and sites necessary to achieve S-1 also rested upon the overall results of two pcev?oxe3:y earlier client selected trainees, as follows: S-1, phase one S-l, phase 2 Total 28 25 53 28 26 54 The averages for the three groups are as follows: Five prototype trainees: 54 sites necessary First cliented selected group 53 sites necessary Second client-selected group: 85 sites necessary All three training programms were dilivered exactly the same, with the same orientation and theoritical lectures, and the same coaching and instruction during practical work, modified only by having to take into account the individualities of each trainee, as has been our policy. In fact, the environment xt in which the last group worked was much different from the environment at SRI in Menlo Park, due to the fact that there were no upsets at all, and the environment was benign and peaceful.
