Referral Programs

Some of the teacher training courses reviewed on TEFL Course Review have referral programs, but most do not. If a course has a referral program, we do add referral IDs to some links to the courses’ websites; this allows us to earn revenue to develop and maintain this website for you. However, referral IDs are ignored in the rating algorithm and do not affect a course’s rank in any way.
