Become a Mortgage Advisor

Become a mortgage advisor

To become a mortgage advisor candidates must first pass a professional qualification such as The Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP®). CeMAP is the benchmark professional qualification for any candidate that wants to provide UK mortgage advice as a mortgage advisor. UK mortgages are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which requires all advisors to attain the relevant qualification before they can do so. CeMAP  is a London Institute of Banking and Finance Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) Level 3 qualification and is listed as an appropriate qualification recognised by the FCA. There are no entry requirements to commence the CeMAP qualification.
