The only way to learn a new tool is by using it.

You don't have to wait for CVS to be installed for you, unless you don't have
internet access. You should get aquainted with CVS by creating a scratch
repository with a few sample files to get the hang of it, before you deal with a
production system. When you aren't sure what some command does, you can always
go back to your scratch repository to try stuff out w/o fear of damaging
something important.

There is a learning curve to CVS, but day-to-day use is pretty easy. Karl Fogel
has written a great book on CVS that you might find helpful:
