I have an old mining character I want to switch over to station trading/manufacturing/research. Since this won't be a primary focus or active role, I had then planned to swap the character to my main account and save the monthly fee.

I would appreciate any advice as to the most important skills to train before the transfer (as I don't plan to continue training this character after that point). I would like to wrap that up in 1-2 months, but do have 1.75 million refunded learning skills.

The obvious first step is getting Trade skills up to IV is key (possibly V for accounting, not sure that Broker Relations is worth the loss in versatility). As I understand it, only pre-Connections standing affects broker costs, so it isn't worth pushing it any higher.

I was thinking of training Scrapmetal Processing, Advanced Mass Production, and Supply Chain Management. I don't know much about research skills/agents, but my only decent faction is Brutor Tribe, which I don't believe offers research agents. My support skills are pretty awful, so getting an industrial skill up to V for better haulers seems like it wouldn't be worthwhile without more investment than I want to make on this character. I'd appreciate any suggestions as to where to go from here.
