Low, IMO. If you know EIGRP/OSPF, you'll have no trouble picking-up
IS-IS. Took me a few hours in a Cisco lab @ Uni to have it all
worked-out (interestingly that was about all the CCNP labs covered at
the time!)

Of course, knowing how the protocol works at a level suitable for
implementation in a critical network takes a bit longer, but you
shouldn't have any issue bootstrapping your test networks for that
purpose.
