FrameMaker's online help (Help > Help Topics) or whatever it's called is
fairly well written. The PDFs in the FrameMaker installation are
available on the Internet. One of the PDFs is a quick start, of sorts.
Go through them in order to find your skill level.

If you'll be using XML with FrameMaker, there are a few lengthy PDFs
covering that. If you have a FM copy at home, you should experiment
there instead of on your employer's dime.

Perhaps, you could be more specific as to your experience level...

Create HTML or Microsoft Word content and convert to Help file formats or
printed documentation. Features include support for Windows Vista & 2007
Microsoft Office, team authoring, plus more.

True single source, conditional content, PDF export, modular help.
Help & Manual is the most powerful authoring tool for technical
documentation. Boost your productivity!
