It would also be beneficial for companies looking to add additional products to their portfolios and expand their range. If you’re currently studying for your CeMAP qualification, this makes an excellent addition to your studies.
Anyone may register to study a CeRER qualification, however, to complete the qualification you must either hold a Level 3 Certificate in Mortgage and Practice (CeMAP) or an equivalent qualification to CeMAP.
If you do not hold either qualification, we advise that you to first register for the CeMAP Modules 1, 2, & 3.

There are many people in the UK looking for solutions on how to release equity from their homes, and you will be able to advise them on their best options available. This in turn opens an additional revenue stream for both yourself and your organisation.
If you would like to offer advice on Equity Release, but are currently not working as a Mortgage Adviser, or you have not year earned your CeMAP qualifications, it's best to start with a CeMAP Modules 1,2 & 3 course.
