My only advice to anyone getting rejected is don’t give up. Hundreds of people apply for a couple of spots in training and positions. Make yourself more competitive. I took 3 years to make myself competitive. Then I applied to multiple law enforcement agencies and went with sheriffs.
Gonna be spooky in there.

Recently my spouse went out for an ERT team.
I've been rolling with them and encouraging spontaneous friendly attacks around the house. It's fun and it helps them keep the material fresh.
Most agencies cater to the most common denominator. Not the old brown shirts. (now blue, of which I was not in favour, who cares ) 7 years later I still use, remember and have been highly successful (self evaluation) with all the skills the B.C. Sheriffs taught me. Seriously, i'm the most unassuming "under water knife fighting ninja" i know. I'd quote the person that taught me that but he knows.
8 years ago, B.C. Sheriffs were the lowest paid peace officer in the province. That might still be true, and with it, come other bottom of the barrel complications. I don't know anymore as I don't ask my friends what its like. I will say, that if you join, and move on, you have a hell of a resume of tactical know how. Make sure you keep all that stuff fresh.
I won't bother with how long I was with the Sheriffs, or what I do now, but I am either really disappointed in ERT training from other agencies or I'm just really happy I went B.C. Sheriffs first. The basic B.C. Deputy, can do so much, all in how you choose to use it.
Cheers to the new recruits, don't give up, it will pay you back in way more than a paycheque.
