What is the difference between a Short Course and an Online Bootcamp?

An Online Bootcamp Program is an intensive and accelerated learning program made up of a collection of self-paced eLearning components and live online classes that students are required to attend. The Online Bootcamp program curriculum contain a combination of specifically chosen courses and career-critical skills that are aligned to a job role.

A Short Course on the other hand are shorter courses that is designed to target developing a specific skill set or topic. They generally are much quicker to complete than Bootcamp Programs.

They then report their findings to others in the organisation, proposing the appropriate solutions or improvements to current processes. Their work aims to maintain the reliability, efficiency, and accuracy of an organisation's cyber security program, while abiding by industry standards, laws, and regulations. As such, these experts often earn a generous salary package, with the average IT audit manager earning about $120K AUD in Australia (according to Glassdoor).

5 star

Upskilled is the best online study service I have used so far. They were very quick with replying to study questions and my trainer, Peter, was fantastic. The online portal was easy to follow and I was able to complete the study within the time frame. Overall would highly recommend this company to study with. I just wish they had more courses to choose from as I would love to study again with then.


5 star

The course structure is good, easy to understand the topics are relevant and updated. I recommend Upskilled to anyone who wants to study online.
