From what I can tell, it (that is, the Starship Engineering Training skill) only appears to modify a single bridge officer skill (Eject Warp Plasma) and a single Engineer-career Captain space ability (Rotate Shield Frequency). It does also seem to have an effect on hull repair rate. I'm doing a test on that now to sort that part out, though.
