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 October.
This first graph shows the number of applications we received each month this year. The month of October brought us our lowest number of new applications so far this year and indicates a sharp decline in our number of new applications.
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 October. We had four Academy graduates this month making October one of our lowest months for graduates so far this year. This number also includes one member who applied in September and two members returning to our fleet after LOA.
These new recruits are the lifeblood of our community. Without them, it becomes difficult to keep our ships fully crewed and even more difficult to grow the fleet. If you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.
