Is this course valid in Scotland?

CeMAP is a widely recognised mortgage qualification that can be studied and practiced in England, Wales and Scotland. While this course is based on the England and Wales syllabus, the Scottish regulatory framework for mortgage advice is closely aligned with the English framework. The slight differences between the English and Scottish modules are specifically in Module 2: Mortgage Advice Procedures, and Module 3: Mortgage Practice Issues. These differences are related to the specific legal and regulatory requirements that apply to mortgage advisors in each country.

Therefore, you can complete this CeMAP course and apply for a Scottish mortgage adviser's license without having to retake any of the modules. 

To make sure that you meet the requirements for practicing as a mortgage adviser in Scotland, you should inform the London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF) when you register for the CeMAP course that you are a Scottish student. The LIBF will then ensure that you receive the correct course materials and will guide you through the process of applying for a Scottish mortgage adviser's license.
