Short Skill Plan
The Short Skill Plan is intended to get new players into useful ship hulls early so they can take part in EVE University fleets while they train up the more advanced skillplans.
This plan is intended for very new players. If you have been playing a while it is likely you will have most of these skills already.
The skillplans are stackable, so if you train the higher levels it will include all previous levels.
These skillplans will not get you into EVE University doctrine ships, but they will enable you to fly a more basic fit for the same hull, which will enable you to attend fleets while you are training the necessary skills for the doctrines.
The following are estimated timescales, with no implants or accelerators:
Frigate DD Basic
N.B. The following timescales assume that you have Hull Upgrades III trained, as most starting characters do. However, if your character is Caldari they will not have this by default, so the plan will take a few hours longer if you have not already trained this.
|Omega: 5 hours, 58 minutes, 10 seconds||Alpha: 11 hours, 56 minutes, 20 seconds|
Cruiser DD Basic
|Omega: 4 days, 16 hours, 40 minutes, 46 seconds||Alpha: 9 days, 9 hours, 21 minutes, 31 seconds|
All of the skills on this plan are covered under EVE University's Skillbook Reimbursement Program.
The total costs for each stage of the plan are as follows (at the direct injectable price):
Suggested shopping lists
Our suggestion for EVE University members is to spread the skillbook purchases over 3 days.
N.B. You will not need to purchase any of the skills you already have trained, which will reduce the costs. Each race starts with its own gun skill. If you have completed the tutorial you will also have your race's frigate skill.
If you have the Freshman title in EVE University you can reimburse yourself for the cost of these skills by following the instructions on the Skillbook Reimbursement Program page. You can also check in the hangars for the campus you are based in, to see whether they have any of the skill books available.
If you are in EVE University but don't yet have the Freshman title you can still obtain reimbursement for the cost of the skills. You will need to copy and paste the prepared messages (below each shipping list) into the Corp channel so someone with the Freshman title or above can reimburse you from the Skillbook wallet. Remember to remove from the list any skills you already had trained.

Once you have trained these skillplans you will be able to fly a basic version of the same ship hulls most Uni fleets use, including:
Some ideas for ship fits you will be able to fly are on the Short Skill Plan Suggested Fits page. These are not EVE University doctrine ships, but they will allow you to fly the correct hull and join the fleet while you are training the more advanced skills required for the doctrine ships.
