In Dark Heresy your skill choices are determined by your class and rank. Which skills (not talents) are unique to only a single class? Assume just the core Dark Heresy manual for reference.

To clarify, assume this references the classes as written. I know it is possible to ask the game master for advancements that are not on your list.

WIth all due respect, if the answer is a simple matter of checking the book, and it is even known which part of the book to check, is it a real question..? – Cristol.GdM Jan 4 '13 at 22:02
As a matter of fact, putting together a list of career-exclusive skills is quite a tedious work. I suppose OP hopes to see a link to the job already done. – Jeor Mattan Jan 14 '13 at 15:46
@JeorMattan That is exactly what I was assuming. – MadMAxJr Jan 15 '13 at 16:08

There appears to be a reference which can answer your question in the Mediafire folder here. It's the file called "Skills with Errata 5c.pdf" (direct link).

It lists what skills each class gets and when in tabular form, so it should be easy to tell which skills have only a single entry.

Exactly the kind of information I was hoping was already put together, thanks! – MadMAxJr Jan 29 '13 at 18:19

It depends if you mean by the rules or in playing. If a pg can find someone that can teach him a skill, he can learn (paying the appropriate xp, expecially if it's not in the list of his career)
