There is also an in game mailing list and channel for Agony classes, which might be handy, see the agony wiki for details. The courses, especially the PVP Basic, are very popular though.
Completely irrelevant to that point, how I ended up in NPC 0.0 is fairly simple and dull, I'm a '10 character, so still new enough not to be completely bitter, and when I started playing i got pointed at E-UNI, like everyone and their dog, it seems.
That got me a good grounding in how stuff works in eve, and enough people around all the time to try lots of things out, and not fail too hard at any of them, so I tried mining, found it sucked without company and chemical assistance, WH stuff, missioning, a bit of manufacturing, etc etc. and basically found the thing I liked best of all was tooling around trying to cause something to die in a fire, either myself or, preferably, someone else.
It is actually a really good place to go to find your feet in eve, and there seem to be lots of corps that like ex-unistas, including a couple of MM corps, at least one IT corp, various pirate corps, and hordes of WH corps. I suspect the uni grads are like cockroaches though, if you turn over a stone in any major corp you'll find at least a few, even PL.
So I was basically bimbling around in empire, in a bit of a rut, couple of days a fortnight doing highsec L4s, to pay for the ships I'd be getting blown up soloing in Amamake, OMS etc the rest of the time. Somehow ending up teaching the E-UNI basic fitting class cause no-one else was doing it, and flying in fleets with the corp when some "merc" corp decided that deccing the biggest high sec corp in the game (I think) is a great way to pad their killboard. At the same time I was getting slowly bored with empire, and looking at moving to null, partly due to this benighted hole of a forum.
Luckily Agony started recruiting again recently, and even more amazingly, they let me in, so I have been having a great time out in Curse, shooting people and dieing in fires, though hopefully my 2 ranis a day habit is tailing off a little.
They are a great bunch of guys to fly with, and I have learned more in the past couple of weeks than I have in the previous few months.
Woo, look at all these footnotes!
 You literally have to almost camp the Agony forums when the sign up thread goes live, at times.
 You can talk for 3 hours solid going over basic basic fitting stuff, who knew?
 It isn't, the uni flies like TEST and the goons, bar the local spam
 Agony itself isn't a training corp, they just run courses for other people.
