Not to put a downer on things but I was told by a recruiter
That the trade is currently closed.
I was told that I would have to wait till April to see if it opens.
Unless someone else knows different.
The forces website is rarely updated.
Hold out, don't accept any other trades from the recruiter, and you will (most likely) eventually get offered a position. And then you can refuse your QL5 course and fight to get released a few years later as well.

Out of curiosity , why were people saying the posting was closed to the public
And the open spots reserved for remusters?
Would you know Why people refuse the QL5 course?
I guess the reason being is the municiple depts pay more?
I'm sure there are other reasons?
I heard the trade is under review. The hull techs are the ones dealing with the fire fighting duties on the ships. There was also a rumor about receiving spec pay.
