Welcome to the New home to the Federation Academy! We are glad that you have decided to make a decision to enroll in some courses! 

With the Federation Academy you will find courses that will help you learn more about the Federation, science, Space, and more! These courses are designed to increase your overall knowledge in the general science world and the Star Trek Fandom! 

These courses do have a set standard score but above all are designed for you to have fun. If you have any questions or need help with anything please reach out to our Federation Academy Director! 


The IFT Academy has been in operation since January of 1998 as an Educational branch of the International Federation of Trekkers. We are committed to serving the IFT membership in a timely and friendly manner and to offering the membership a wide selection of courses at the lowest possible cost FREE!

The Academy offers three Courses on Professional Development, the Officer Candidate Course the initial course of instruction for the new IFT Officer, the Staff Officer Course for those in or seeking a staff officer position within the Chapter and the Command Course: Commanding Officer’s for anyone who is a new Commanding Officer or who aspires to be one. We also offer a selection of Elective Courses on topics which include Alien races, such as the Romulans and Cardassians, as well as Science related Courses.

On each course page, you will find the course exam and a manual for that course.  The exam’s are open book and can be completed as many times as you would like. 

Our courses are graded on a Honor’s grading system.  The requirements for each course will be the same for all classes.

  1. What is CompletionThis will be you completed the course
    1. You will get this level of grade with a grade of 70% – 85%
  2. What is Cum Laude: Passing With Honor means passing cum laude. 
    1. You will get this level of grade with a grade of 85.01%- 89.99%
  3. What is Magna Cum Laude: The magna cum laude definition is With Great Honor. 
    1. You will get this if you pass the course if you complete the test with a grade of 90%-95%
  4. What is Summa Cum Laude: Most define summa cum laude as With Highest Praise, and the summa cum laude definition is With Highest Honor. 
    1. You will get this if you pass the course if you complete the test with 95.01% or higher.
** Please Note. Because each exam does not have the same amount of questions, in order to keep the grades accurate and fair the following formula will be used in determining your grades. 
 
— 100 (total possible score) Divided by number of Questions = Points per Question. 
For Example: If a course has 17 Questions and you miss 3 questions, it would be graded the following way:
 
100/17=5.88 (rounded) Then 5.88 (ppq) times # wrong. 5.88X3= 17.64-100=82.36% (your recorded score)
 
This site is still a work in progress, and our classes are not all fully loaded yet.  Please check back here for updates!
