How hard is it to learn Quickbooks?

How to quickbooks? I'm computer and internet literate, can add/subtract/multiply/divide (usually with a calculator, just to be sure) and I think I understand how to double entry bookkeep. I am clearly not an accountant. Can I learn enough about quickbooks to justify applying for a job requiring it?

Want the job, have everything but the quickbooks skills. I am not an accountant, and have never used quickbooks, but can work outlook and the internet and such just fine (I never really had to use excell, so i'm REALLY rough on that, but the job posting doesn't mention that). I would have 2-3 weeks to study before showing up in the office if I got the job.
So, I guess the questions are:
Can I learn it well enough? They don't mention what level of expertise, but this is not labeled an accounting or upper level job (or mid level, honestly, sounds like). The screenshots I've seen look mostly common sense. They do mention lots of training.
What basics of quickbooks should I know if they ask about it in the interview?
How much accounting skills should I really have? I wish the job posting was more clear; this is the first job aspect I will be asking about.
Where should I train on quickbooks? (I did find this page http://quickbooks.intuit.com/product/about_quickbooks/demos.jsp )
