Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in December.
This first graph shows the number of applications that we have received each month this year. During the month of December, the fleet saw eight new applications. This number ties the previous month and is the fourth month of 2016 that saw eight new applications.
The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application:
This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of December. We had six Academy graduates in December. This number includes one applicant who applied at the end of November and two returning members of the fleet. We also had four applicants who applied during December but whose training did not conclude until January.
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.
