How many years experience did you have before you become a 'monitoring engineer'?

Our team was discussing what it took to be a monitoring engineer.  I don't mean a user of Solarwinds products but someone who actively designs, implements and manages a monitoring environment.  I'm especially interested in people who do monitoring for the majority of their role.
