Start simple, with free cloud tier, to play around: Request free Jira Cloud
Don't install any apps - you need to see what you get in Jira out of the box :)
Read all built-in Jira guides - don't skip it
When you have your own playground, start some Atlassian university courses, start with free courses for beginners: Atlassian University - filter: beginner + free
Practice what you learn along the way of courses. Explore and try to 'manage' some of your processes eg. make a weekly plan, with all 'to do' stuff and scheduled events.
Then move to more advanced courses and search for other resources - there are plenty of YT videos
I am not sure if learning Jira 'quickly' is at all possible. Every new skill require time to learn and practice. You begin with simple things and gradually increase the level of difficulty. This requires time - every time.
However, it is usually a challenge to have a good roadmap where to start and what good materials there are available.
Some time ago I created an e-book for Jira Administration beginners who visit my blog. Recently I updated it with some newly available materials. Maybe this is something that will help you too.
Take advantage of the Atlassian community. Ask questions like this one! If you think of something you want Jira to do, and you cannot find it in the documentation, ask!! I've found the Atlassian Community to be the best support group around. Their combined knowledge is amazing.
You can subscribe to Jira Cloud and play around with it for free for 1 month. Then you can renew subscription. Practice makes perfect.
There are plenty of project templates there. Create a project from template, check it out how they make workflows and other stuff and fit to your organization. Templates are pretty good to get a general knowledge on how things can be done.
And the most important rule - always set Resolution when you move your issue to a final state.
The really easy answer to this is just "use it". As a user, you will find all sorts of interesting ways you might want to try out and as an admins supporting those people, you are going to get asked a lot.
I have been here a while and I am still learning from "can Atlassian stuff do ..." questions daily
Play with it, try things out, think about your people who just want stuff to work for them. You will help and learn at the same time.
