While there are various different qualifications required for specific areas of providing mortgage advice such as equity release, a Certificate in Mortgage advice and Practice, or CeMAP, is recognised as the industry benchmark in the UK.
To work professionally as mortgage broker, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) requires all advisors to have a relevant qualification in their field such as a CeMAP. Along with being accepted by the FCA, CeMAP is a Level 3 qualification and part of the London Institute of Banking and Finance’s Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). A credential respected and acknowledged by both future employers and clients, a CeMAP qualification is an ideal selection for would be brokers looking to practice.
The perfect start to a professional career
CeMAP courses are well respected for a reason. They offer candidates a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of giving mortgage advice so they can excel in their new profession.
Divided into three separate modules, CeMAP mortgage advisor training begins with background information on offering financial services, the products available and the regulations here in the UK. After gaining this initial understanding, CeMAP students will advance to the second part of the course where they will learn a host of new skills from making applications and understanding payment methods to handling mortgage arrears and coping with completion issues. In the third and final unit of the course, students will apply their new skills and knowledge to dedicated case studies.
All modules of the CeMAP mortgage advisor training course are completed by a multiple-choice examination.
Acquiring a top mortgage broker qualification
Whether you select to undertake CeMAP training from home on a flexible distance learning course or in the classroom with an expert tutor you can obtain a qualification that will stand you in good stead as an advisor.
After you have completed your examinations, you can add the CeMAP credentials after your name, displaying your new skills to potential employers. You can also add your certificate to your office wall to show prospective clients you have the abilities to help them secure the mortgage they seek.
