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.


What is the Prince2 Foundation certification?

Now considered a staple among industry professionals worldwide, the Prince2 Foundation certification verifies one's skills in effective project management. The credential explores more agile, productive ways of approaching the project lifecycle, implementing greater project control, resource management, risk management, and task delegation.

Projects managed under the Prince2 framework typically follow eight critical processes:
  1. The startup stage, in which the project manager and key decision-makers are appointed;
  2. Direction, in which the the Project Board is established and the project manager is tasked with planning out the key details of the project;
  3. Initiation, in which the project manager prepares a "Project Initiation" document to be reviewed or revised by the Project Board;
  4. Stage boundary management, in which the Project Board reviews and approves the progress of the current stage and plans for the next one;
  5. Planning, in which members decide what products are to be produced, the resources necessary, the activities require to produce them, and any risk management and analysis;
  6. Product delivery management, in which the project manager supervises the project lifecycle, ensuring the right products are produced according to budget, stakeholder requirements, and schedule; and finally
  7. Closing, in which a "Post Project Review" is conducted to review project outcomes and areas for improvement. Upon approval by the Project Board, the project will then be officially closed down.

This process (along with the principles, tools, and methodologies one learns under the framework) enables teams to complete projects with greater planning, flexibility, quality control, and financial management. It allows businesses to save time and money through minimal risk and better resource management, while producing higher-quality project outcomes.

5 star

I had a great experience doing this course with Upskilled. The trainer was very cooperative at every stage of the course and that's the reason I finished the whole course in just under 5 weeks period while the actual period was 12 months to finish this course. I would highly recommend others thinking about doing this course, go on and have your great experience listed here for future students.

The course content was easy to follow and access. Upskilled regularly checked in to see how I was travelling and if I needed anything, which was great. My trainer was next level, she was available to text and email, if I ever had a tough time with a subject, we would arrange a chat and she would guide me through how to best approach it. I felt super supported the entire time and genuinely wouldn't have finished if not for my trainer cheerleading me on in the background.
