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.

Jim was superb, from start to finish. Everything from explaining the content to bringing to life real life examples, he knew when to drill particular sections home and when to highlight specific areas of knowledge gaps. Nothing was to much to ask, and I feel our full class felt at ease and comfort throughout the course.

Terry was clearly knowledgeable about the subject matter and quick to offer context to the study materials. At each stage Terry gave us comparisons and stories that helped us to engage with the course clearer. Time will tell if the stories take root i guess. But overall i found the course very helpful and am hoping it serves me well ...
