I’m training to fly rifters for PvP.  Nothing else.  I just want to max out this character to fly rifters.  So I have followed the famous “Rifter Skill Plan” and have everything up to level 3 with some level 4 and four skills at level 5 now. 
But I’ve gotten to the point where the next level of training is taking more than a few hours – we’re now talking days or weeks for some of them.  I need to prioritize.

Below are listed the relevant skills (except for Electronics, Energy Systems Operation, Engineering, and Small Projectile Turret which I have at level 5 already).
Please let me know which 5 skills you think are most important to get to level 5 for flying a rifter.
Acceleration Control
Advanced Weapon Upgrades
Energy Management
Evasive Maneuvering
Fuel Conservation
Hull Upgrades
Jury Rigging III
Long Range Targeting
Minmatar Frigate
Missile Bombardment
Missile Launcher Operation
Missile Projection
Motion Prediction
Projectile Weapon Rigging
Propulsion Jamming
Rapid Firing
Rapid Launch
Repair Systems
Rocket Specialization
Shield Management
Shield Operation
Signature Analysis
Small Autocannon Specialization
Spaceship Command
Surgical Strike
Tactical Shield Manipulation
Target Navigation Prediction
Trajectory Analysis
Warhead Upgrades
Warp Drive Operation
Weapon Upgrades

Get good navigation skills, to IV except Navigation to V. Speed is important.
Your capacitor skills are important too as MWDs, webs, scrams, repair systems all require cap. Also train some shield/armor rigging skills for your tank. Frigate V will get you max ship bonusss which are very good on the Rifter. Repair systems are for armor tanking option I guess? Get T2 autocannons (Small Projectile Turret V) as Barrage S is a great asset with its range bonus. Energy Tranfer IV for the Nos option. Train rockets later.

Thanks Jennifer - that helps sort out the options. I hope to get them all to 5 eventually, but the best route there is my current focus.

What Jennifer said - but also Evasive Maneuvering V to help you accelerate faster
