What is the Boot Camp Learning Method?

Many people will probably think of the military when hearing or reading the term “boot camp” (or “bootcamp”). With this particular ‘boot camp’ course it is refering to a physical and mental training for new recruits over a few weeks.

The idea has found its way into the methodology of teaching and learning as well: focused, intensive training to achieve a learning goal within a comparatively short amount of time, and perhaps for several consecutive days. Proponents of the method appreciate the in-depth focus that the participants can achieve.

Of even more importance is the feasibility and practicality: Instead of a long-term time commitment, you invest a few full days as you take a short break from your usual occupation and get some intensive, hands-on training.

If your goal is a particular certification, you can achieve that goal in just a short time. If it is a change in your career or the promotion to a more qualified position, a boot camp training can help make such a change within a comparatively short time.

IT certification programs for your careerParticipating in IT certification programs has a number of benefits for IT professionals, as well as, computer enthusiasts aiming to get a foothold in the business. There is a wide array of IT-related courses out there.

What is the difference between IT certification programs and  IT degrees?

You are probably aware that various universities and colleges offer programs that lead to an academic degree in an IT-related field like computer science, cybersecurity, etc. Some of these programs provide certifications as well, but the providers of most IT certifications are private businesses.

One particularly important benefit of a certification is that it usually takes significantly less time to obtain. This is due to the fact that certification courses tend to focus more on one specific area. We, at TechSherpas , offer special boot camps to help you to achieve your IT certification goal.  In addition, it is easier to earn an IT certification at TechSherpas while working full-time, especially since there are options for customizable On-Demand Learning available.

A definition for “Certification” from the Oxford Dictionary describes it as “the action or process of providing someone or something with an official document attesting to a status or level of achievement”.

In contrast to a university degree, an IT certification program is less regulated. It is important to choose the right provider to ensure you are receiving the best value for your efforts, your time, and your financial investment.

How to find the right provider for your IT certification

Theoretically, anyone who teaches some kind of subject can issue a corresponding certification for their students. That is why the selection of the right provider is especially important. You should look for a provider that

  • is qualified, reputable and
  • offers certification courses with recognition value
