Following an FCA-published paper summarising that advice and guidance should be more widely accessible to consumers, The Society of Mortgage Professionals has called for more continued professional development for advisers to provide an all-round better service. While regulatory qualifications are required to provide mortgage advice, annual CPD is not a requirement currently. The SMP advise that pairing regulatory qualifications with continued professional development would better equip mortgage advisers with a wider knowledge and skill set.

As the leading mortgage adviser training provider in the UK, Simply Academy are dedicated to providing students with the best regulatory training courses, such as the Certificate in Mortgage Advice & Practice (CeMAP) and the Certificate in Regulatory Equity Release (CeRER). We have also developed a new course called the Competent Mortgage Adviser Certificate (CMAcert) which is a follow on course from the CeMAP qualification to help advisers develop key practical skills going towards their Competent Adviser Status sign off. This e-learning course takes you through all aspects of the day-to-day job role while building your digital workbook which acts as a record of your achievement and can be shown to employers to prove your dedication to enhancing your knowledge and skills.

To find out more about the CMAcert or any of our other courses, call us on 01279 874 430 or email us. We look forward to welcoming you on to your chosen course.
