I'm guessing that because I use rail guns almost exclusively it kept going up. It makes sense, the more you use a skill the better it gets even without training.
No no no no no...
You have it all wrong...
First off, skills in EVE train in real time, you right click a skill, tell it to train, and after the set amount of time it finishes whether you are playing or not. There is no other way to train skills (so, no, using your railguns did not raise your small hybrid skill).
Second, to speed up training you train up learning skills. Each skill has an attribute assigned to it which determines how fast you gain SP for that skill, the higher the attributes the faster the skill trains. Training up learning skills will raise your attributes thus allowing you to train skills faster. You can also install implants which increase your attributes thus speeding up training time as well.
Third, you picked a career path at creation which gave you small hybrid 5 to start, which is why you don't remember training it to 5... It was already there when you started.
