Pick a mortgage adviser course

In order to offer mortgage advice you must hold a recognised qualification. The Certificate in Mortgage Advice & Practice, commonly referred to as ‘CeMAP’, is the perfect course to set you on the right path to a mortgage adviser career.

The Level 3 CeMAP prepares you with all the industry knowledge and expertise to start offering mortgage advice as soon as you’ve qualified. It’s respected throughout the industry and truly is a great place to get started.

Those looking to expand their knowledge of the broader financial services environment can also undertake the Level 4 Advanced CeMAP diploma, which supplies you with the training needed to provide your clients with high-quality, ethical advice.
