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 September, the fleet saw 12 new applications. This equates to roughly one new application every two and a half days and sets a record for number of applicants in one month for 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 September. As a fleet, we had seven Academy graduates in September which includes one graduate who applied during the month of August. We also had four applicants who applied in September, but whose training did not start until October.
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.
