From The Jedi Academy Archives
Jump to: navigation, search

A Jedi Academy Trainer (JAT), or Jedi Academy Instructor, is a position at The Jedi Academy which grants one the honor of teaching Classes to the Students/Members of the Academy. JATs are also high-level admins and have full admin access on the Academy Servers. The Jedi Academy Trainers have more influence on JA policy and are the true backbone to the executive side of the Academy's Staff.

History

When the academy was in developement, JAT applications were open and eventually saw around 15 people pass their trials to attain the rank before being ceased. After complaints regarding staff behaviour, it became clear that JATs were better chosen than applied as they were a primary example to the lower ranks and morale was reduced when they failed to serve as such.

Description

Quote from the Academy's Holocron:
"Trainers are the heart of the academy. They keep running classes on weekly basis and have full access to admin commands to keep order on servers. These are the right guys to ask if you have a serious problem or want to learn some extra stuff. Notice however that they’re only human and have to care about many other things. Be patient with them, and respect them for their hard work for the academy.

Classes

As an Instructor, it is required that you hold Classes for it's Members to attend and learn from. The Instructor can decide for himself how many Classes he wants to teach (minimal requirement is 1), and what he wants to teach in his Classes.

The most common Classes are Classes that are focussed on the Force, weapons and the Lightsaber.

Not all of the Classes that an Instructor holds have to be serious, or aimed at learning. An Instructor can choose to hold a class that is soley aimed at having fun, like going to a Public Server to play against non-Jedi Academy Members, having a CTF/TFFA/Siege match, playing Jedi vs. Merc (Empowered vs. Terminator) or something else.
