If your boss wants you to learn SQL Server, he should provide you with the proper training. Or at least cover all your expenses.
It should be but doesnt happen specially in small size company.person has to bear those expenses.:-)
Then it's a small company doomed to failure. Boss keep telling people that they must learn X in their own time at their own expense, one of two things happens:
The person spends the absolute minimum time 'learning' whatever it is, and the boss gets someone who's completely incapable of doing anything useful.
The person leaves and goes somewhere where they are appreciated.
Small company != right to take advantage of your staff.
