Yeah training them is easy; I've trained several of them myself. Convincing them that it's worth it to them to be trained is another story. The company I just left -- we spent two years trying to find CF devs and there was nobody applying. So we said okay fine, ANY dev will do and we'll teach you CF. Nobody was interested. There is a huge "fake news" style of negative press surrounding CF that needs to be handled before this will turn around. Remember the adage -- if you tell a lie enough times, it becomes the truth.
