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 further qualifications to boost your skills. The CeMAP Diploma sets you apart from peers and enhances the service you offer clients.
The Diploma for Financial Advisers (DipFA) is another great option, enabling you to offer advice on retail investment. It also meets FCA standards and will be recognised by employers and clients.

Brendan was brilliant...really interactive and kept me (and the group) engaged throughout the week. Great pace to the course and brilliant CeMap books and mocks. Clear and easy to digest

Fantastic course, Brendan was amazing at no point did anyone feel too overwhelmed or disengaged. I would highly recommend Brendan again. Simply academy’s packs were also great too, throw a longer lasting highlighter in there too and it will be perfect.

I dont think one day is enough for the course as we didnt get the chance to go through any exam questions/mock exams.

Would have given the course a 5 star rating but additional training to the syllabus meant time scales were a bit tight to fit into one day. Only the skill of Alan enabled us to cover all the new syllabus.
