With regard to scheduling additional training, a recommended pace for advancing through Stages II and III consists of a six-week effort for each trainee, broken up into working sessions of two- weeks duration each, interspersed by two or three weeks leave. The cost breakdown based on the six-week scheduling is as follows: (a) $18K for the first trainee, $7K for the second, if training of two individuals carried out in parallel, i.e._, at the same time. (b) $18K for the first trainee, $12K for the second, if training of two individuals carried out in series, i.e., at separate times. (c) Training of individuals on different stages each would preferably be handled in series in accordance with the provisions of (b) above. 4. The point at which completion of one stage has occurred and commencement of another is begun is determined on the basis of a complex of factors which constitutes an art and a craft, as much as the science which involves double-blind testing and evaluation. The transition is, however, driven by the natural dynamics of the process in such a way that higher-stage characteristics begin to emerge spontaneously once lower-stage characteristics are integrated into the trainee's RV process. Rather than permit haphazard development of such character- istics on their own, tutelege of such is initiated. Therefore, should a trainee complete Stages II and III before the end of the six-week time frame set aside, advancement to Stage IV would be undertaken. Similarly, if for some reason a trainee has exceptional difficulty integrating the characteristics of a given stage, care will be taken not to advance him prematurely, as the proficiency of handling the elements of any given stage depends on the thorough integration of the elements of previous stages. In this case, the cost breakdown based on an estimated six-week committment would need to be augmented for stage completion as per (a) and (b) above. 5. We recommend that the above-described training of client personnel at SRI be closely monitored by COTR in residence at SRI, who is best equipped to track the interests of the client community and insure viability of the client-contractor relationship. 6. I hope the above outline provides the information you need to plan for your potential FY'83 participation in the SRI training program. If any of the points need clarification, or if special circumstances require other solutions, please contact either or me for further discussion.
