Depends on the kid.

My friend has a boy and a girl and neither of them trained til after 3. I started early training (year and a half) my girls and didn't train my son and they were all trained (though my son WAY better than his sisters) at 2.75 years.

My suggestion is to let him be in charge. In my experience it works much better and faster to let the child be completely in charge of their own bodily functions. I offered my son encouragement and assistance when he needed/wanted it, but the rest was entirely up to him.
