Each month, the Academy staff compiles the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did in August.
This first graph shows the number of applications we received each month this year. The month of August brought us eleven new applicants, which is the third highest so far this year. This number is down from the previous month, but is still as strong number indicating about one application every three to four days.
The following chart shows how members found us, according to their application:
This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of August. We had nine new Academy graduates this month making August our highest month for graduates so far this year! This number also includes four members who applied during July but finished their Academy training during the month of August.
New recruits are the lifeblood of our community. When our application rate slows, it makes it hard to keep our ships fully crewed, not to mention impossible to grow. So if you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.
