How to choose the best CeMAP course for you

20 October 2021

The Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP) is the Financial Services sector’s benchmark qualification for mortgage advisers. It is FCA-approved, Ofqual accredited and will help you to get your new career off to a flying start.

But it’s important to make sure that you select the best CeMAP study option to ensure that the course you pick will suit your individual needs. When you’re looking at your options, it’s important to ask yourself the following questions:

  • How much time can I commit to my CeMAP studies?
  • Which study option will best engage me and fulfil my learning needs?
  • What is my personal style of learning?

Ensuring you have the time to commit to your CeMAP course is an important starting point. You don’t want to sign up for a course and then find that you struggle to commit to the attendance and input required. 

You also need to pick the course that will suit your own individual learning style. Simply Academy offers three different ways to study CeMAP: Fast Track classroom-based courses, Live Webinar online courses and our self-paced CeMAP home study course.

CeMAP Fast Track course

Our CeMAP classroom course is ideal for learners who find it easier to focus on their studies in a training centre. There are six locations for our classroom-based Fast Track CeMAP course: London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh and Bristol.

The CeMAP syllabus will be delivered by one of our experienced CeMAP tutors over 2 x 5 day courses. You’ll receive our high quality course materials and will be able to interact directly with the course tutor and the other students as you develop your knowledge and understanding of the CeMAP syllabus.

CeMAP Live Webinar course

If you prefer not to travel for your course, you can also study CeMAP online with our Live Webinar CeMAP courses. These offer the structure associated with classroom-based learning but with the flexibility of studying from home or any other location that’s convenient for you. 

Over the course of 10 days, our expert trainers will deliver the CeMAP syllabus through scheduled live webinar lectures. Our online webinar system allows you to interact with your tutor and the other students on your course, and your tutor will be able to provide you with feedback. You’ll get the same first-class study materials as our CeMAP Fast Track students and all lectures are recorded which makes them ideal revision material for when you’re preparing for your CeMAP exams.

CeMAP E-Learning course

If you need to fit your studies in around your existing commitment or you just prefer to study at your own pace, take a look at our distance learning CeMAP qualification. Home study makes this a very flexible learning option and you could qualify with as little as 3 months’ study.

You’ll receive 12 months’ access to our engaging CeMAP course online materials which are delivered through our study portal. This is designed to be iPad and tablet friendly so you can study wherever and whenever you choose.

Our CeMAP tutors will provide online support for any questions you have throughout your CeMAP course. You’ll also be provided with online quizzes, FAQs and even a mock exam to help you prepare for your own CeMAP examinations. 

The range of CeMAP study options available from Simply Academy sets us apart from other training providers. We aim to help each individual student develop their skills in a way that suits their own unique learning style. That’s how we have managed to help over 10,000 students complete the CeMAP qualification on their path towards becoming a mortgage adviser.

Important Note

Whichever study option you opt for, it’s important to make sure that you pick the best CeMAP courses delivered by an accredited CeMAP training provider. 

The growing popularity of careers in mortgage advice has led to several unaccredited operators promoting low cost or free CeMAP courses on Google and Daily Deal sites. These substandard courses might have missing or out of date information and the organisations may not even be authorised to deliver CeMAP training courses.

This award means that you can rely on Simply Academy to provide training services of the highest standard.
