If you’re looking to advance your chosen career as a professional mortgage advisor, then a home study course to gain a CeRER qualification may be an option worth considering. While you’re already working as an advisor, CeRER home learning can be a convenient option that enables you to study around your existing workload.

What is a CeRER qualification?

A Certificate in Regulatory equity Release (CeRER) is a qualification recognised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) that enables mortgage advisors who possess it to offer advice to clients in the rapidly developing market of equity release.

This level 3 qualification is Ofqual registered, is highly respected and will enhance your CV by showing evidence of a wider range of skills sought after by employers and clients alike.

To start studying CeRER you first must complete either a CeMAP or equivalent qualification in Level 3 mortgage advice.

Taking the initial step to start offering equity release products

After gaining your mortgage advisor initial certifications, why not widen your skill set with a CeRER qualification? This level of certification will enable you to advise clients who want to release capital from their property under an agreement that they make a repayment later, while still living in their home. Demand for equity release is growing fast.

The course is divided into two different parts. The first unit is entitled the Fundamentals of Equity Release. In this unit, advisors will learn the principles for equity release and explore the different kinds of schemes that are available on the market and when each type is appropriate. Advisors will also gain an understanding of the disadvantages, advantages and possible risks faced by clients who opt to release equity. Unit one concludes with an exam comprised of 50 multiple choice questions.

Unit two is called Equity Release Solutions and trains advisors how to apply various options for equity release to different clients depending on their circumstances. To complete this unit, advisors must answer a total of 30 multiple choice questions linked to three separate case studies.

The pass mark for both examinations is 70 percent. Following a successful result, course candidates can add the letters CeRER after their name to inform future clients and potential employers of their new status as an advisor qualified to offer professional equity release advice.
