Equity Release Course
The Certificate in Regulated Equity Release – CeRER is an additional qualification that will enable existing CeMAP qualified mortgage advisers to give advice in Equity Release. Equity release refers to circumstances when candidates over a certain age can release equity from their main residence to fund retirement or long term care without the need to sell their home. UK mortgages and Equity Release schemes are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which requires all advisers to attain the relevant qualification before they can do so. CeRER® 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 and registered with Ofqual in the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). To gain the CeRER qualification candidates must already be CeMAP (or equivalent) qualified.
The Equity Release module is assessed through a single 2-hour multiple choice exam, split into two units:
- Unit 1 – Fundamentals of Equity Release: 50 multiple-choice questions (70% pass mark required)
- Unit 2 – Equity Release Solutions: 3 case studies each with 10 linked multiple-choice questions (70% pass mark required)
