How long does it take to become a "full-fledged" Capuchin?

In many ways one never becomes a full-fledged Capuchin Franciscan friar, because the vocation of a Capuchin is to continue growing in the Spirit throughout his entire life. However there is a period of initial formation leading up to the profession of perpetual vows, and this can be from three to six years. If a friar is studying to be a priest, he will also be involved in theological studies for several years.
