Hi Walker,

where to start depends a lot on your already existing knowledge on 
electrophsyiological data analysis and your programming experience. If 
you have not very much experience in the former, I would suggest to read
This also gives a very nice overview on some rationales in the FieldTrip 
toolbox in general.
I assume your programming to be somewhat good due to your background, so 
you can go on by checking existing tutorials and adapting their example 
code to your need:

You could start with the preprocessing tutorials and see how you can 
adapt them to what you want.
And, be sure to use the search function of the wikipage, e.g. search for 
'import data' if you get stuck on importing your data ;)
As another example, you can search for 'emotiv':

But better start in the beginning instead of skipping important steps ;)
