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 May.
This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. During the month of May, the fleet saw ten new applications. This is the highest number of applicants in a single month so far this year, and is a great improvement over the month of April.
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 May. As a fleet, we had only three Academy graduates in May which is our second lowest number so far this year. While we had a significantly larger number of applications than graduates, two of the applicants from May did not complete training until after the beginning of June and one of the graduates applied to the fleet in April.
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.
