It took me and two coworkers about 40 hours to get productive in Frame (the
core 20% of templates and "flow"): three weeks total before we were fully
proficient, working independently and solving unforseen issues on-the-fly
(it was a huge two year structured publishing project, so the investment
was deemed worthwhile).

We had

* plenty of support from mentors inside the company (who'd worked out most
processes and the training routine beforehand),

* instant access to an enthusiastic Frame Techsupport,

* an amazing variety of legacy docs to convert (practical experience),

* one small cube during the training for four people to kibbitz and share
self-directed discoveries, and

* an almost fanatical devotion to the project (We were all somebody's kids
within the group 8-)
