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. The month of December saw eleven new applications which ties May as the fourth highest this year. It is also an increase from the three previous months.
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. The fleet saw four graduates in December marking it as fourth time in 2019 that the fleet had four graduates. We also had one applicant whose training did not conclude until after the start of January.
For the year of 2019, the fleet saw one hundred fourteen new applicants, which averages out to roughly nine per month. We also saw seventy seven of those applicants graduate, which works out to a passing average of sixty eight percent.
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.
