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 August.
This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. During the month of August, the fleet saw eight new applications. This equates to roughly one new application every four days and coincidentally is the exact same number of applications that the fleet saw during the months of June and July.
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 August. As a fleet, we had five Academy graduates in August which includes one graduate who applied during the month of July. August marks the second month in a row that the fleet saw five graduates.
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.
