Recommendation Do I recommend?
Udemy Affiliate Program is a program after the research is one I would recommend. With over 4,000 Enterprise customers and 80% of Fortune 100 Companies use Udemy for employee [Udemy for Business] student courses improving job-related skills. With over 130,000 courses available on their website it would be silly not to recommend to you. I’d rate Udemy 4.6 out of a possible 5.0. The Biggest reason for not a bit higher rating is their decision to reduce their cookie from 30 days to seven days.
