Cisco 2960x switch software update

Hey Experts.  Looking to upgrade the Cisco software of several 2960x switches.  Current version is 15.0(2)ex4 and after downloading the newer version 15.2,4e6 but wasn't sure if I can go from where I am to the newer version without any steps in between.  Would appreciate advisement on this.  Thanks Experts.

Copy file to device flash via TFTP or from USB thumb drive.
Check if boot section is configured:

sh run | i boot

boot-start-marker
boot system flash:xxxxuniversalk9-mz.SPA.151-4.M5.bin
boot-end-marker

If there is something between
boot-start-marker
boot-end-marker

issue:
no boot system flash:xxxxuniversalk9-mz.SPA.151-4.M5.bin

and then configure new IOS that you are installing:
boot system flash:<NewImageName>

exit from configuration mode, then issue:
copy run start   (confirm that you want to save changes)
reload
and confirm that want to reload switch.

Thanks for the reply/information.  What I was really more curious about is if I can install that version of software with the previous version being so far behind.
Check for your exact switch model list of supported IOS versions. -

Ok.  Let me try to phrase the question differently.

I currently have 15.0(2) running on my switches.  The newer available version is 15.2.4.  Can I go straight from 15.0(2) to 15.2.4 or do I need to install a version in between?
