I'm going to open a alt account for specifically a Orca pilot. does anyone have a specific skill training plan to get straight to piloting a orca. My plan is to get that far really quick after busting out the cybernetics 5 for implants so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Depending on what you're going to do (I guess highsec mining for the start?) you can skip quite some skills/skill levels for now saving you more than a month of skill time and possibly allowing you to get your invested money back faster (not saying you shouldn't train them later on).

For the beginning I'd skip the Warfare skills as well as Industrial Command Ship V and Warfare Link Specialist V. The later two skills get you some more boosts on V but most other skills related to Gang Links and mining bonuses are far more effective (skill them once you're done with others).
Electronic Warfare (and the corresponding Drone Op) can be skipped as well.
The other drone skills are rather optional (they net you some more ISK/h but not that much). Signature Analysis isn't that important either.
An Orca with mediocre shield skills and one or two Shield Extenders/Invulnerability Fields can tank high sec belt rats for hours without having to worry about respawning waves attacking drones which can be a huge plus for mining while doing other stuff.

Overall miniCarl's skill list is quite solid, but I wouldn't see it as a must-have-completed list before you can start having fun with your Orca. Also try to get the Ship (obviously; level 3 or 4 are enough for the beginning; just train everything to just sit in the Orca) and Gang Link skills first, then get the Mindlink and then perfect your boosting skills (i.e. Warfare Link Specialist V, Industrial Command Ship V and such).
