New research from Legal & General Home Finance and the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) revealed that the UK economy has received a boost of over £7bn in 2017 thanks to homeowners releasing equity in their properties. According to the Equity Release Council, lifetime mortgage sales tripled between 2013 and 2017, with the surge in popularity making it the fastest growing sector in the mortgage market.

With equity release popularity growing at an exponential rate, many advisers are looking to add this additional qualification to their skillset, giving them the opportunity to offer this attractive service to both current and new clients. Simply Academy have made this easy by offering an intensive 1-day training course to cover the full Certificate in Regulated Equity Release (CeRER), giving students the knowledge and skills they will need to obtain this sought-after qualification. Available to CeMAP qualified (or equivalent) advisers, students can attend one of our nationwide course venues for a full days training lead by our experienced and knowledgeable course tutor. Full CeRER course materials are provided, and when you finish your training, you will be ready to complete your examination to become fully qualified.
