Gentlemen:

Subject: Meeting to Discuss Recent Developments for Operating Licensing 
Examinations (Generic Letter No. 82-38)

On January 6, 1982, a meeting was held in Bethesda, Md. to discuss the
revised  format and content of the NRC Operator and Senior Operator Licensing 
Examinations. The meeting was well received by the participants and provided 
valuable feedback to the staff. Generic Letter 82-13 discussed the questions 
and suggestions raised in that meeting. Since there have been several 
developments in the area of Operator Licensing since the January 1982
meeting,  the staff will hold a similar meeting at the Holiday Inn, 8200
Wisconsin  Avenue, Bethesda, Maryland, on February 11, 1983 at 9:00 am.

We have planned a format similar to the last meeting. There will be a brief 
presentation by the Director, Division of Human Factors Safety, and the
Branch  Chief of Operator Licensing Branch, followed by roundtable
discussions. The  following topics will be discussed:

1. Implementation of the NRC Requalification Audit Examinations,

2. NRC Activities to Assess the Licensing Examination Process and Content,

3. New Administrative Procedures, including computerization of the Operator 
Licensing Branch Administrative System and use of a Standardized Application 
Form,

4. Regionalization of the Operator Licensing Function.

Because of the importance of these topics to you and the licensed operators, 
we urge you to have representation from your training department at this 
meeting. Since the Requalification Audit Program is still undergoing internal 
review, information in addition to that already included in Generic Letter
82-18 is not available at this time. We will make additional information on
this  Program, and on the improved administrative system, available as soon
as  required reviews are completed.
