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 September.
This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. During the month of October, the fleet saw 12 new applications. This equates to roughly one new application every two and a half days and ties September for the largest number of applications so far this year.
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 October. As a fleet, we had eleven Academy graduates in October. This is our largest number of graduates in one month so far this year! This number includes seven graduates who applied in September. We also had four applicants who applied in October, but whose training did not conclude until after the start of November.
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.
