      Hi Nina! I recommend you to finish the OEC first. However after you found your niche you can choose to go the Bootcamp. The Affiliate bootcamp is made especially for the MMO (make money online) niche and for promoting Wealthy Affiliate. The OEC (online entrepreneur certificate) is made for all other niches and for selling your own products as well. Since I have a site which is a Hybrid of make money online and Personal development I took them both. You can take them both if you want.
