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 December.
This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. December brought 2017 to a close with a bang bringing in seventeen new applications! This marks December as the month with the largest number of applications all year! In total, the fleet saw one hundred eighteen applications in 2017.
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 December. As a fleet, we had six Academy graduates in December. This number includes one graduate who applied in November. We also had six applicants who applied in December, but whose training did not conclude until after the start of January. In total our fleet had seventy three Academy graduates in 2017.
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.
