This letter is being sent to all licensees authorized to operate or 
construct a nuclear power reactor and to all applicants with applications 
for a license to operate or construct a power reactor. 

In late September and early October the NRR staff held a series of regional 
meetings with the nuclear power reactor industry to discuss implementation 
of the training and qualification requirements contained in Appendix B of 10
CFR 73.  At these meetings considerable interest was shown in holding 
workshops at which the techniques of job analysis and performance testing 
would be explained along with how they relate to training and qualification 
plan development. In response, NRR will sponsor such workshops. The workshop
will be designed for the working level personnel who will be directly 
involved in training and qualification plan development. Schedule and space 
limitations require that each site be limited to two representatives. 

NRR is planning to send out pre-workshop material that the site 
representatives should complete before the workshop. To facilitate this 
mailing, please use the attached registration form to identify who is going 
to attend. If you are sending a representative, the registration form must 
be returned to the following address by December 8, 1978:
