Are these courses offered by different institutes? Are they set up the same way? How long do the courses take? What is your own take on these two?

Those courses do look better. Unfortunately they include things like RMI and threads (rather than Executors) which make me wonder whether they are quite up to date. There is a little overlap between the beginning and intermediate courses.
