Upcoming Changes to the Equity Release Syllabus
31 October 2019
The London Institute of Banking and Finance (LIBF) have recently announced that they will be making potentially big changes to the CeRER equity release course syllabus for exam sittings on or after 6th January 2020. So, what could these changes mean to you and how can you get qualified before the changes come into effect?
What are the changes?
While the CeRER is an established, respected course, LIBF have recently announced an in-depth overhaul of the syllabus. Although specific details have not yet been released, both content and layout are due to be revised. These changes may impact the length and structure of available study options and could result in the study courses being extended to accommodate the additions.
When will the changes happen?
• The first set of changes will be implemented for all CeRER exams sat on/after 6th January 2020.
• The LIBF also anticipates further updates in April 2020, to accommodate Brexit and Budget changes.
Due to the uncertainty of the changes, it is unsurprising that many students are keen to become CeRER qualified before they happen in early 2020.
How do I become CeRER qualified before the changes?
In order to support all equity release students wishing to complete their CeRER qualification quickly, we have added extra training days in London, Birmingham and Manchester on the run up to the New Year. These training courses include:
