Time to be proficient in Studio/Storyline

Does anyone have a rough no. of hours it takes to become highly skilled in Articulate Storyline and Studio?

I'm aware of Omniplex training which holds a 3 day course in the UK but that would be around 20 odd hours total.

So enough to get a foundation to build on.

I'm curious about how many hours of creation and experimentation and learning you would need to get to an upper-intermediate and then advanced level.

I'm sure this is reflected more in the quality of courses produced and the amazing technical and design ability that members of the E-Learning Heroes community possess.

This isn't a question looking for a shortcut. If it takes 300 to 3000 hours then I can understand that.

I'm also aware that Storyline and Studio are different products.

Thank you to the community and all replies are appreciated.

Hey Nicholas, David Anderson has a weekly community challenge to help people flex their design muscles so to speak. The challenges are fun and it is a non-judgemental place to show your work. It might be a good place for you to start if you are looking build a portfolio.

oops I should have read Jeff's post -  he was way ahead of me in suggesting the challenge.

Hi! First post here. I am really impressed with the support from the community in this forum. I have used PowerPoint a little over the years, but came upon Tom's blog and have learned over the last 5 months an enormous amount about PowerPoint. I had no idea how powerful it is! The step by step instructions are exactly the way I learn. I redesigned a whole PowerPoint presentation I gave in November using the green bulb template and other things I learned from his blog. With all of the free stuff offered on this site I am considering purchasing Storyline for myself. I believe the amount of time it takes to get proficient and then more skilled is based on motivation, learning ability, and practice. I see now that the more I use the sills I learn the better I am getting. Each project seems to be better than the last. And when I look back I see how I would have done each previous project differently using new skills. I love it!
