That is very hard to answer... it depends on the technology... some need more of a learning curve than others.

Depends on the technology, it's difficulty level, what prior experience I have that I can leverage, my time to learn it, how well the instructional materials are, and so on and so forth.

 

Example: when I switched from Microsoft Office to a competing product, it was a much quicker learning curve than when our company upgraded to the office version with the ribbon toolbar.

Expert is level 4, one capable of emulating and enhancing what already exists. They are able to take their subject on a linear path of more than 3 points.

Craftsman, the creator, is level 5.

Contemporary definition of EXPERT means I can get my task and my task only done in a reasonable amount of time. I'm an expert at clicking PRINT.

I can use AI to print an awesome image on paper...an expert in a few minutes.

However the same task and same tools engaged in a task requiring color separation, pantone matching, gamma correction, ICC profile substitutes and substrates of variable permeability suggest expert has different qualifications althogh clicking PRINT is the same.

To the master craftsman. the learning is never over. 

PS: We have all been witness to EXPERT useage of duct tape.

Technology is always updating and advancing. I don't know if we ever truly become an expert. However, it depends on the technology. Some is more complicated while others are intuitive.

Expert, I don't think any of us become an expert.  Pretty good, not that long, great somewhat within a few months but nowhere near an expert and I personally am better than average, expert, no way and nowhere close.
