Welcome to the Academy.
The design of the academy is different from a standard school. There will not be but a short list of courses that you can just sign into. It takes a lot of time to develop a class and this is a volunteer site. As courses are created, that are for standard issue, they will be put on the site as being available.
Courses listed on the academy site qualify for knowledge and participation points. They do not qualify for advancement to command grade ranks.
Command Grade academy courses are developed for the individual. You must contact the academy via email and send the following information:
1. What you are interested in learning about.
2. Which ship you are assigned to.
3. Do you have an ability to travel short distances (can affect course projects.)
Command grade courses will require writing, teaching, and demonstration of knowledge. If you struggle with writing you can submit the writing assignments with google docs and use their voice typing application. Courses will push you to learn which is why it is important for you to pick a subject you are interested in.
Teaching will be done by presenting information, related to your topic, to your crew or to members of the fleet. A command grade officer must be in attendance at your class.
Anyone can succeed in taking a command grade academy course. We are here to work with you and to help you to succeed. Reach out and send in your course requests.
Thanks so much.
