8 self-paced crash courses by RTR are available at any time from the rtrlearning.com Moodle site. Split into two groups, “Navigating the Interface” and “Managing Users”, they should give you a solid basis to create and administer a Moodle setup.
You could be able to complete each course in a matter of minutes. If you are really into it, it should take you half a day to be done with them all.
