In order to advance in any ranks from Dark Jedi Youngling to Dark Jedi Knight, you must spend at least 2 weeks in each rank. There are no other way around this rule and only the Overlord can make an exception if the need for it rise. After the two week is spent, you must make the request before the Dark Council that you wish to advance to the next rank. During that two week, you will train in the Academy to be better in using all aspect of what may be part of PvP and PvE. Whatever your weakness is, other Masters will work with you to supplement that weakness. The reason why you would train in those area is because you will be tested by the Dark Council in all aspect of PvE and PvP.
