The mortgage industry is currently one of the few high-growth employment sectors, with many companies seeking Mortgage Advisors who have the ability to advise clients on equity release. Whilst the skills gap continues to widen, this is a great opportunity for you to upskill and enjoy a successful career in the mortgage industry.
CeMAP is the most recognised mortgage qualification in the UK, making it the best choice, whether you are looking for a Mortgage Advisor role in a bank, building society, estate agency or if you plan to branch out as an Independent Advisor.
Once you have passed your CeMAP accreditation, the CeRER Level 3 certificate is your next stop, and on successful completion, it will give you the "right to practice" and allow you to advise your clients on suitable equity release products and services.
As a qualified CeMAP Mortgage Advisor, gaining an accreditation to advise on equity release will add to your skillset and increase your salary potential. The popularity of equity release products is increasing, £1.06bn of property wealth was accessed via equity release products in Q1 2020, up by 14% from the previous year (source: Equity Release Council). As a result, the need for qualified professionals has significantly increased and advisors are looking to upskill to guide their clients through the process.
CeMAP and CeRER professional qualifications are approved by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), accredited by Ofqual and awarded by the London Institute of Banking & Finance.
Our Virtual Classroom training has provided high pass rates, which has made us confident to offer an Exam Pass Guarantee*, so you know we’ll support you until you are certified. The e-Careers virtual class is an interactive experience, giving you the opportunity to learn from some of the leading CeMAP and CeRER trainers, as well as network with fellow students, in the safety and comfort of your own home.
