These skills are on deck for training next:
Minmatar Dreadnought
(Logistics prereq) > Tactical Logistics Reconfig
Capital Shield Operation

Do dread pilots need shield or sensor comps?

I'm looking for any dread-essential skills that I may have missed, or useful support skills.

Tactical Logistics Reconfiguration is actually a CARRIER skill.
You want to make sure you don't misunderstand, what skills affect which capital ships.
What you want for Dreads is:
Tactical WEAPONS Reconfiguration. (You have it at V already)

Sensor comps are good to have.
Shield comps only work on PASSIVE modules these days, so that question is dependent on fitting approach.
Typically, the Nag would be active fit with hardeners though.

Actually, capitals should be fit with active resist modules.

If pirmaried, they can be overheated until they burn-out, then swapped-out for a fresh undamaged module from a nearby carrier.

Of course armor tanks use passive EANM, so having armor compensations at 5 is recommended.
