Okay so let’s say I decide to wait it out. Wait for an officer role to open up. What can I do while I’m waiting?  Any courses open to the public or those on competition list?  Does it make me valuable if I get proficient in the use of firearms by eg taking pistol certification courses?

Without knowing much actual details (your education levels/areas, work experience, CFAT results, etc etc) other than the trade you are interested in doesn't hire very many people, I'd still recommend talking with your file manager/MCC, etc at the CFRC to discuss with them what you could do to make your file more competitive.  They know the details here we don't, and IMO would be the best people to advise you on "what can I do while I'm waiting?".

And...good luck!  It can be a frustrating process, unfortunately.
Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.

Il y a des Anglophones qui sont nés aux Québec aussi, vous savez.

Are you attempting to enrol PRes or Reg Force? Army, or Navy? (or Air force)... and trade?
