Can you learn all these computer stuff in only 3 months?

This question is for people who knows computing. Imagine IF you are a novice in Computing and you know the bare minimum in Computer Networks. What if you managed to secure a job as a Network Administrator. Do you think as a novice, you will be able to create or design your own network for your company in only 3 months?
