The Eve Uni class really helped me get going. I read all the wiki's but it was a little overwhelming. The class had a practical exercises at the end which was really helpful. PI has a some required UI clicking and learning the sequence is key. Don't know when the next class is schedule and it has been a while.

The next thing is to plan out what you want to build. My suggestion is start with a target P2 material and find a planet that can support a single planet production chain. The uni wiki planet guide gives you which planet types support what materials. https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Planets Once you have P2 down, try making a P3 material.

High sec is OK to learn but yields are lower + taxes are higher and recommendation in class was to find places in Null/Lowsec. I have PI set up around LSC Eugales which had a great starter support in stock (Command facilties/ships).
LSC even has a nice PI getting started forum post. https://forum.eveuniversity.org/viewtop ... 4&t=115694

Without the class, look at the recommended Youtube video. Others are available if you look around.

Coolio’s advice is all food. Follow it.

In addition -
Go experiment.

Find a planet, throw a colony down, and get first hand experience with what the system is actually like. Play with routing products, storage, customs offices, etc. get used to the interface.

I read all the class content, read the tutorials - and still made some silly mistakes at first. Make those mistakes, before you throw fully built level 5 colonies on multiple planets.

I started writing a response then it got out of hand.

I will say that planning I use http://eve-pi.com/#/ and https://www.adam4eve.eu/pi_chain.php and monitoring I just log in every day, but you can turn on planet monitoring in EVEMon if needed.
