In my textbook, there is a sentence " You can be swiftly trained for your new job from using previous skills."

Is this "from" naturally used here? Should I use "by" instead?

Thanks for your help!

"From" is certainly wrong there. "By" doesn't work much better. It doesn't fit with "You can be swiftly trained ...".

You can be swiftly trained for your new job by someone who already does the job.
Your training for your new job will be enhanced/quicker if you already have some relevant skills.
