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 April.
This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. During the month of April, the fleet saw seven new applications. This number ties with the month of February for the second highest so far this year. It is also a strong increase from the previous month.
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 April. As a fleet, we had only two Academy graduates in April which is our lowest number so far this year. While we had a significantly larger number of applications than graduates, two of the applicants from April did not complete training until after the beginning of May.
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.
