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 February.
This first graph shows the number of applications we received each month this year. As you can see, the fleet received only seven new applications in the month of February which averages about one every four days. Unfortunately this number is down quite a bit from January.
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 February. It is worth noting that we had several cadets who applied in January who graduated in February and a few cadets who applied in February who graduated in March.
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.
