Studying CeMAP is the perfect first step towards a new career as a Mortgage Adviser.

CeMAP is the Financial Service industry’s benchmark qualification, held by around 80% of UK Mortgage Advisers. It is approved by the FCA, accredited by Ofqual and awarded by the London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF).

CeMAP certification demonstrates to potential clients and employers that you are qualified to offer professional mortgage advice. The qualification meets industry regulatory requirements and is highly respected by Financial Services employers. So it’s no surprise that over 10,000 students have chosen to study CeMAP courses with Simply Academy since 2006.

This post will answer all your CeMAP2 questions, including what the course syllabus covers, the available study options and the cost of studying CEMAP 2.

What is CeMAP 2?

Studied together within one course, CeMAP 2 and 3 follow on from CeMAP 1 as the final part of the CeMAP (Certificate in Mortgage Advice & Practice) qualification.

Before you can study CeMAP 2&3, you need to either complete the CeMAP1 course  and pass the associated exam or alternatively complete the FSRE unit of the DipFA (Diploma for Financial Advisers) course.

What does the CeMAP 2&3 course cover?

The four units of CeMAP Module 2 (Mortgages) cover the essential knowledge you will need to fully understand mortgage advice. The course syllabus covers topics such as mortgage law, applications, mortgage protection products and payment methods as well as issues that may arise after completion. All of this will give you a thorough grounding in the mortgage application process.

CeMAP 3 is concerned with the Assessment of Mortgage Advice Knowledge. This module is based upon your knowledge and understanding of the previous two modules (CeMAP 1 and CeMAP 2). The course helps you to consolidate your knowledge and learn how to put it into practice in various scenarios.
