The Financial Conduct Authority requires all practicing mortgage brokers operating as licenced advisors to have relevant certification. The London Institute of Banking & Finance’s Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP) is a qualification specific to the UK, that meets these approved standards, and around 80% of all brokers across the country offering advice possess it.
Those seeking to become brokers can learn like regular students on a course in a classroom with a professional tutor, but there is an alternative approach to acquiring a CeMAP qualification that can be more convenient for some. A home study CeMAP course can allow brokers to complete their training remotely and has multiple advantages that may be more suitable for an individual’s specific circumstances, or a better fit for the way they like to learn.
In the following sections, we will explore some of the many benefits CeMAP home learning with an online course can bring to would-be brokers.
1. The ability to study whenever and wherever you want
Studying online offers the ultimate in flexibility for those wishing to gain new skills and become an advisor. All you require is an internet connection and you can pick up and put down the studies at any time and from any location, making online learning an incredibly adaptable option.
2. Learn at your own pace in your own way
Training via video can be advantageous for students that wish to spend more time on certain topics they find tricky to grasp. Unlike studying live in a classroom, learning online with modules presented on videos will allow you to pause and play lessons whenever you like and rewind modules and repeat lessons as many times as you require. In short, home CeMAP training makes it possible to lean at your own speed,
