About Beacon Financial Training

CeMAP Training Courses

What makes us different

If you have been looking and researching different training companies who offer CeMAP training,  you may be wondering why you should choose us and not a different company.

We have been delivering the highest quality of training for over 15 years now and have acquired numerous reviews and testimonials from our satisfied clients that reflect the level of service that we offer.

10 staff all passed their CEMAP thanks to Brendan and they all provided excellent feedback on his style of training” – Barry, Practice Manager at STEVEN MARTIN & ASSOCIATES LIMITED

There are a multitude of reasons that makes us a leading CeMAP training provider.

Key considerations:

Brendan O’Neill

Creation, design, and delivery of CeMAP and CeRER training courses, to enable individuals to pass the regulatory exams necessary to be a mortgage/financial adviser.

Value for Money

Our training courses are competitively priced – offering both exceptional quality and value. We are committed to offering you the highest quality of training at competitive prices. If you find a CeMAP training course from a company that is registered with the official examining body that offers training cheaper than ours, we will not only match your quote, but offer a further 10% discount on your quoted price.

Training Materials

Here at Beacon Financial, we use our own tailor made training materials. These materials have been written in house by our CeMAP  training specialist Brendan O’Neill. Brendan has been delivering CeMAP training since 2004 when CeMAP became a compulsory element for mortgage advisors. Over the years, he has devised, developed, and amended these materials which are designed to make the learning more accessible for students. Our training materials have proven to be so effective, that other training companies often buy our materials for their own use.

Course Viability Numbers

An area of concern when choosing to book a classroom course is their availability and whether the courses are guaranteed to run.

We guarantee that all of our courses will run, even you are the sole applicant.

Course Size

Another important question that you need to ask when deciding on a CeMAP course provider is “how many other people will be on the course itself?”. This is a really important question, as larger classes pose the risk of reducing the one to one tuition time and support you may receive. Because of this, we believe the group size per course should be no more than 16. We limit our class sizes to this maximum to offer you the greatest chance of success in this course.

    Course Re-sit Guarantee

    If at first you don’t succeed, there is no need to panic, we offer an unlimited period resit guarantee – this means that you are able to re-sit your examinations as many times as necessary to achieve success.

    Course Location

    Our training is available at venues and locations which are accessible to our students. In order to ensure that our venues are accessible, all our venues will be accessible via the road network close to motorways and offer free parking.

    Flexibility of your booking

    If you book with us and are then unable to attend the course for whatever reason, we will allow you to transfer your booking to another course free of charge. We understand that circumstances, personal or work related, may get in the way and you need to transfer the course date.

    Guaranteed Interview

    Due to the fact that we deliver training for a number of companies in our area, many of these companies contact us in order to help meet their recruitment needs. Therefore, we have been able to offer anyone who books CeMAP training with us, a guaranteed interview with a firm looking to take on newly CeMAP qualified individuals. Starting salaries for these positions are around £29,000 plus bonuses on top.

    Qualified Teachers

    At Beacon Financial, we offer high quality CeMAP training courses provided by qualified teachers. CeMAP is an academic exercise and therefore we insist that all our trainers are not only CeMAP qualified but also hold a recognised teaching qualification. The concepts in CeMAP can be difficult to understand and we think that the person delivering the course needs to be an expert, not just academically, but also in delivering the highest quality of teaching and tutoring.

    A small company

    We’re proud to be a small company based in the North West of England close to both Manchester and Liverpool. We offer our classroom courses in the Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds areas, also known the M62 corridor. Because we are a small company we can guarantee that you get the best training for a competitive price, as well as quality control and accountability. When you study with Beacon, we can offer you post course support as well.

    Important note: The training course fees do not include the registration fees which are payable to the London Institute for Banking and Finance (LIBF) which you will need to pay in order to sit the exams. These are £185 per exam. Their telephone number is 01227 818609 or you can visit them online at www.libf.com

    Recognised CeMAP® Learning Support Provider

    Recognition Statement
    This learning support is recognised by The London Institute of Banking & Finance as being an appropriate additional resource for students undertaking its CeMap qualifications

    Choosing a CeMAP® Training Company

    There are plenty of firms offering CeMAP® training in the UK, but the vast majority of their trainers have no teaching qualifications or experience. Isn’t that a bit of a concern, especially when some of them are charging over £1,000 per course?
