UK Financial Regulation or CeMAP 1 consists of two units:

  • Unit 1 – Introduction to the financial services environment and products
  • Unit 2 – UK Financial Services and Regulation

A certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice, or CeMAP for short, is a specialist qualification developed specifically for people who seek to become fully qualified mortgage advisors, certified to guide those looking to acquire lending to purchase property. The CeMAP course will teach and equip all who take it with the essential knowledge and skills required to perform this role.

Who can benefit from a CeMAP course?

Those planning a career in offering professional advice for mortgages must hold a recognised qualification approved by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). A CeMAP course is an excellent place to start to reach that goal. Both clients and employers alike recognise the qualification as a mark of not only a mortgage advisor’s commitment, but of their understanding and expert knowledge in their chosen field. Once certified, you’ll be ready to start working as a qualified mortgage advisor and take on clients.

What you’ll learn with CeMAP 1

CeMAP is a qualification divided into several units studied in different modules. Along with acquiring both the knowledge and crucial skills, the course also teaches those taking it how to practice the role of mortgage advisor, including how to manage clients.

Your learning journey will start with CeMAP 1, a course made up of two units. The first unit is entitled an “Introduction to Financial Services and Environment and Products”. It’s designed to offer potential advisors a background in the sector they will be employed in and give them a solid foundation to build on. It includes a 60-minute long objective exam with a total of 50 multiple choice style questions to answer.

Unit two covers the UK Financial Services Regulations, with those passing achieving a firm knowledge of the laws that must be adhered to by those advising others on mortgages. Just as in unit one, those completing unit two of CeMAP 1 must answer 50 question in a multiple-choice exam.

Our CeMAP 1 course is taught by qualified experts with a passion for teaching and boasts a 90% pass rate. With easy to comprehend course materials, you’ll benefit from access to 1,000 questions, previously featured in exams to prepare you.

The Course Content Was Excellent

I used Brendon’s training programme to pass CeMAP exams, the course content was excellent, well scripted and designed for ease of understanding. I booked the course online not knowing anything about the company and a little sceptical that would be worth the money, however I would fully recommend the course to anyone considering a change of career.
