Ive got a few questions on tanking sentries.

1. What skills will i need to tank sentries?

1b. What levels should they be at?

2. What modules are required to properly tank sentries?

Thanks.

I trained sentry tanking to level 3 and it works fine.

2 hull reps and a damage control should let you stay there long enough.

Use drones to cycle the sentries. They'll go after them, taking some pressure off you. I've been using a 1600mm dual rep decent resist nos domi. I don't need the dual rep to tank the sentries, its just in case.

Edit: to answer your question

1. What skills will i need to tank sentries?
Shield or Armor? Get all the rank 1 skills in engineering to lvl V, all shield compensations to lvl IV. If armor, I have repair systems V, mech V, and all armor compensations to IV.

1b. What levels should they be at?
above

2. What modules are required to properly tank sentries?
If you want to sit there and tank, you'll most likely need cap injectors. Other than that, just the standard set of equipment

Buy a drake with a passive shieldtank and rigs it can perma passive tank sentries.

Tanking 500dps/sec without shield boosting is just wrong! Me wants a Drake. Shocked

it's also incorrect. possible if u fit all mids with tanking mods and all lows with recharges or pdu's etc. that makes it kinda useless tho if solo and still would be surprised if it can even then

Na dude rigs FTW. Costs a fair bit of isk but you can have resists over 50% with that kind of passive recharge.

Only 350 dps from the sentries not 500 (176 per sentry).
