The CeRER qualification is a great course to follow a CeMAP or equivalent. Once you hold a CeRER, which is recognised by the FCA, you are fully qualified to offer advice within the rapidly growing equity release market.
The CeRER is a level 3 qualification registered with Ofqual in the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). It is highly respected, broadens your skills and enhances your CV.
- The Certificate in Regulated Equity Release (CeRER) is an RQF level 3 qualification accredited by Ofqual and awarded by the London Institute of Banking & Finance.
- This equity adviser course is split into two units and assessed within one module.
- Knowledge is assessed in a 2-hour multiple choice exam. These can be sat at over 150 locations throughout the UK.
- When you finish your CeRER course and pass your exams you are awarded your certificate and may add the designation ‘CeRER’ after your name. This shows future clients and potential employers that you are qualified to work as an equity release adviser in the UK.
To achieve CeRER you must have completed CeMAP or an equivalent Level 3 mortgage advice qualification.
The core Equity Release module is assessed through a single 2-hour objective exam, split into two units.
|Unit 1 – Fundamentals of Equity Release (FOER)||
The principles of equity release
Types of schemes available and the circumstances in which equity release may be appropriate
The advantages, disadvantages and potential risks to consumers
|50 multiple choice questions|
|Unit 2 – Equity Release Solutions (EQRS)||Selecting suitable equity release solutions to meet circumstances of different types of consumers||3 case studies each with 10 linked multiple-choice questions|
Once you hold your certificate in equity release you may consider undertaking The Diploma for Financial Advisers (DipFA) which is another great step in your career enabling you to offer advice on retail investments alongside mortgage related products. It meets the FCA standards and will be recognised by employers and clients.

David was very knowledgeable and had a well structured course laid out to explain how to tackle the coursework. My only complaint would be that we spent, what I'd consider to be, an unreasonable amount time discussing submission and plagiarism. I understand that others needed clarity on this topic but I feel this could have been condensed to allow more ...

Took CeMap 1,2&3 with Terry Bateman as the trainer. An unbelievably passionate and knowledgeable trainer with an adaptable style of training. I did two weeks, one after the other completing the course and passing the exams for 1,2&3 in about 4 weeks. I couldn’t have done it without Terry’s guidance. Something that can not be bought is experience and ...

I wouldn't have passed CeMap 1,2 & 3 if it hadn't have been for Simply Academy & in particular Alan Downing's style of teaching. First class and fun all round. Thank you.

Overall Dave always makes courses engaging and positive. He uses story telling to make the content more engaging. I liked the break out groups and opportunity to discuss the subjects.

I’ve just completed 12 days of webinars with David Beever across CeMAP 1, 2 & 3, and then equity release as well. All the way through he has been absolutely fantastic. I was worried when I booked that I wouldn’t get the same experience as training in person, but I needn’t have been concerned. He’s absolutely one of the best ...
