Frequently Asked Questions
CeMAP is the recognised industry standard qualification for mortgage advisors. Achieving this qualification will help you launch your new career. The qualification is divided into a set of seven units spread across 3 modules (CeMAP 1, 2 & 3).
In three modules, you'll explore; the purpose and structure of the UK financial services industry, the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA’s) main aims, activities and relevant Conduct of Business rules, the house-buying process and parties involved, the different types of customers and mortgages, and how to assess the affordability and suitability of different mortgage options and associated products.
The qualification will equip you with the expertise you need to give mortgage advice.
At Beacon Financial Training, we don’t assume you have any prior knowledge. We pride ourselves at being able to take someone with no background experience or knowledge, and guide them through CeMAP training, and get them CeMAP qualified.
The CeMAP exams are facilitated by The London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF).
We are one of only a few Accredited Learning Support Providers (ALSPs) for the LIBF, but only the LIBF can host your examination. Our job is to prepare you for successfully passing the LIBF’s exams with our training and development courses.

Comprising two unique units, the CeMAP 1 course has been carefully developed to provide students with a solid foundation in giving professional mortgage advice.
Unit 1 is called an ‘Introduction to Financial Services and Environment and Products’. This first unit is designed to give new advisors a general overview of their new sector and provide them with a strong knowledge base to build upon.
Unit 2 of the course will see participants learn about the UK Financial Services Regulations, allowing them to gain comprehensive knowledge of the strict laws created to guide advisors when assisting their clients with mortgages.
CeMAP 2 and 3 have been specially designed for trainee mortgage advisors to expand their subject knowledge by building on what they have already learned in CeMAP 1.
Simply entitled “Mortgages”, the CeMAP 2 course is divided into four separate units continuing sequentially from the CeMAP 1 course.
Unit 3 focuses on four topics – Policy, Mortgage Law, Markets and Practice.
Unit 4 then turns the student’s attention to the subject of mortgage applications, instructing trainee mortgage advisors how to understand and employ the essential documentation specifically designed for mortgages.
Unit 5 illustrates the different payment methods for mortgages and explores the wide array of products currently available on the market.
Unit 6 deals with mortgage arrears along with any issues that can arise prior to completion, to prepare potential advisors for typical obstacles occurring while advising and guiding their clients during a mortgage application.
The CeMAP 3 course has only one module:
This module is about assessing your mortgage advice and knowledge. This unit consolidates the knowledge you gained in Modules 1 & 2 and teaches you how to apply it to different scenarios.
