The CoC can stop applications if you're undergoing disciplinary/administrative issues.
If the CoC doesn't like you they can try and stop your application but then your bad performance needs to be documented in your PDRs or on paper somewhere to substantiate their claims otherwise you're in a good position to redress it.

Thats what I was kinda figuring.

It's easier to apply to CSOR (CP, hummit, CACI, Cobra) when you're a reservist.  That's both from friends over there and the recruiters themselves.

That said the reserves are often lazy and think that if they just say no they don't have to substantiate why nor does the member have an ability to address it.
Problem is reserve wise it can take you months to track down signatures and people to fill out your assessment forms, get medicals, all the checks you need.

I guess that vary unit by unit.  Mine is fairly quick with pushing things through, its the other parts that are giving me grief, but I am going to address them come monday, when I can contact the recruiter I have been in contact with, and hopefully have something concrete supporting me.

They run AP every year, as well as SFC(formally known as SOBQ)

If you are interested in becoming a Operator, call/email their recruiting cell and put in a application.

AP and SOBQ are both exclusively for those who apply for SF Operator, correct? Would AP and SOBQ be required for members who apply as SF Specialists: MedTech, CER, Sigs etc. or upon completing Assessment would they move into alternate training pipelines? I'm curious because I know that the Specialists are held to a different standard than SF Supporters: Clerks, MSE Ops, etc.

This is why applicants are asked to submit a Notice of Intent to Apply directly to the recruiters. And also why a system for redress of grievances exists.

If you apply for Operator, you will take AP and if successful you would move onto SFC.  Those applying for Support/Specialist positions do not take AP or SFC.
