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 the fleet has received each month this year. The month of May saw seventeen new applications which is the record high for new applicants so far this year. This is an increase of five new applicants over 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 May. The fleet saw twelve new graduates during May, which marks it as a clear winner for the number of new applicants in one month so far this year. We also had five applicants who applied during May, but whose training did not finish until after the beginning of June.
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.
