Crafting trainers provide you with new patterns for gear or other items as you level up, but do you ever need to revisit gathering or mission crew skill trainers?

Nope. Gathering and Mission skills are set and forget. You'll gain access to new missions by leveling, or from items you can find or buy on the GTN. There's no need to return to these trainers.

As far as I've been able to determine, no.

Gathering nodes only require a certain number of skill points to gather.

Missions are automatically unlocked as you increase your skill points. Note that you can still select the lower tier missions through the tier dropdown in the upper-right.

Special missions can be gotten through the Slicing profession. These one-time only missions have a much higher payout than normal.

You can buy special missions from the Galactic Trade Network (GTN) too. – Mufasa Dec 31 '11 at 20:49
They can also just be found as drops. – LessPop_MoreFizz Dec 31 '11 at 21:37
@Mufasa That's because they aren't bound to the Slicer that gets them. – user2974 Dec 31 '11 at 21:51
@LessPop_MoreFizz I didn't want to assume they were because I've never had one drop. – user2974 Dec 31 '11 at 21:51
I can confirm that I have had UT and Bioanalysis missions appear as drops or in chests. – LessPop_MoreFizz Dec 31 '11 at 22:20

While the answer from @LessPop_MoreFizz was correct now with 3.0 and also back in 2.0 to get advanced or expert crewskill missions you have to go back to your crew skill trainer to buy the increased crew skill level.

Advanced crew skill - 10.000 credits - level increase to 450 

Expert crew skill - 50.000 credits - level increase to 500
