Welcome to Bravo Fleet Academy (the "Academy”). The Academy is a new fleet service designed to enable Members to acquire the knowledge, skills and expertise necessary to participate in Bravo Fleet to the fullest extent.
The Academy is intended to be a largely self-directed service, members may choose what to study and when to study it. Highly automated, it seeks to provide instant feedback and progression.
The Academy will eventually offer a wide range of programmes designed to assist members at every level of the organisation. The basic building blocks of the Academy are Courses. Each course provides a relatively comprehensive overview of a discrete area of interest, skill or competence.
At present the Academy is very much a work in progress, the following qualifications and courses are available:
Player Academy: a basic guide about how to role play in Bravo Fleet. Entirely optional, however strongly recommended for players new to Star Trek role playing. Player Academy is open to all members of Bravo Fleet.
Command Academy ("CO Academy"): a comprehensive programme covering all key skills and knowledge points necessary to, successfully apply for and, run a simm in Bravo Fleet. Any member of Bravo Fleet may sign up for CO Academy. To do so, applicants should fill out the CO Academy Application Form.
The following qualifications are under development and will be available in the coming months:
Fleet Senior Leadership Academy ("FSL Academy”): an orientation programme for players who have recently joined, or aspire to join, the fleet staff, whether at TFXO/Command Adjutant level or Bravo Fleet Admiralty level. These courses cover leadership and management, handling conflict, participating in constructive discussion and general fleet operating procedures. FSL Academy is by invitation of the Academy Commandant only.
In addition to the above qualifications, there will be a large number of general interest courses. These courses will be on offer to the fleet membership generally and cover a variety of in character and out of character subjects. The following content area is also under development:
Functional Academy: an functional programme for players who wish to develop their creative pallets. This programme will include courses in Wiki's (basic and advanced), and Photoshop (including the basics and more advanced courses on developing Avatars).
