These are training centers that consume untrained crewmen (Produced by Cloning Pods or bought at stations) and create specialized crewmen. They are available from Trinium up and should always be built out of Trinium because they don't get any better with higher materials.

Training Time and Cost[edit | edit source]
The training time and cost depends on the type of specialist to train, as seen in the table below. (Can also be seen in-game in the crew tab)
Training Capacity[edit | edit source]
The Training Capacity of the academy is proportional to the volume of all the academies on a ship or station. That also means that it does not make a difference if its one large academy or a lot of small academies if the volume is the same.
Note, that crewmen that are in training will not count towards your ship's crew capacity.
