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.

What is PRINCE2®?
"PRINCE" stands for PRojects IN Controlled Environments, and offers project managers with a highly-organised, process-focused framework for designing, implementing, and managing their projects. Its methods allow for a consistent and controlled approach to project management, helping professionals better address key areas; constantly monitor progress; ensure business benefits, and establish a clear beginning, middle, and end.
PRINCE2's methodologies can benefit organisations through its ability to create a more efficient, productive, and effective project management process. It is also fully scalable, and thus easily tailored to any project regardless of size and complexity.
Two core areas of the PRINCE2 approach involve "themes" and "processes". Themes refer to critical areas of a project that must be consistently addressed. The seven themes under the PRINCE2 framework are business case, organisation, quality, plans, risk, change, and progress. Processes, on the other hand, are key stages within the project lifecycle. Processes under PRINCE2 include: directing a project starting up a project, initiating a project, managing stage boundaries, controlling a stage, managing product delivery, and closing a project.
