I learned to type late in life using a $10.00 Mavis Beacon program. I used the program for about two months, for an hour or two after work, three times per week to get to 30 wpm of true touch-typing. Obviously, you could compress that time frame. After that, you can stop using the program, and you'll get faster just by typing whatever you usually type. I type about 70 wpm now, and I'm really glad I finally learned how to do it. Go for it.
