Academy Courses

NOTICE OF VACANCY: The Academy is currently in need of a course tutor for the Counseling course . Tutors are responsible for mentoring candidates in their respective courses, providing feedback on their progress, review their coursework, and approve their graduation upon successful completion of the course. If you are interested in serving as the Counseling Course Tutor, please submit an application along with writing sample and two Command references to Academy Vice Commandant FCAPT Jerome "Condor" Davis via his contact link. Applications are due January 20th. Finalists will be notified by the 25th and the new Tutor will be announced February 1st. Thank you in advance.

We currently offer courses in the six major roleplaying areas: Counseling, Engineering, Medical, Science, Security and Command (in the form of a DH, XO and a CO course). Each course is self-paced, so you can take as long as you want to finish it. Completing the course will allow you to gain the fundamental knowledge necessary to add dimension to your roleplaying.

A GM course is also available; all GM hopefuls must pass this course before they proceed to one of the GM training programs run by the Gamemaster Department. This course provides the basics of good story development and helps students build the foundations of a successful sim.

NOTE: No course is required for graduation from the academy. All are optional, unless you wish to become a GM, in which case you will be required to complete the GM course and exam.

To take a course, take a look at the Academy Courses.

Each course tutor is responsible for their respective course content and for the marking. IF a course tutor position is vacant, the exams will be graded by the Academy Staff. If you have any questions or comments about a course, please contact the respective course tutor. Course submissions should be marked within 14 days. If they have not been marked within that time, please email the Academy.
