Academy Courses

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.

We also offer an administrative menu course, which takes you through all the cool functions of the admin menu (which you gain access to typically once you make XO in the club). There is no exam and tutor for the course, but if you have questions with its content, please contact the Academy.

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.

The current Course Tutors are:

Counseling: Tyra Schroll
Engineering: Robert Archer
Gamemaster: Gene Gibbs
Medical: Steve Johnson
Science: Daniel Lerner
Security: Parisa Footohi
Command - CO: Katherine Dedul
Command - XO: Anthony Findora
Command - DH: Lindsay Bayes
