CeMAP Certificate in Mortgage Advice (Modules 2 & 3)
What is the CeMAP Module 2 & 3 Online Course?
The ‘Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice’ (CeMAP) Modules 2 & 3 course takes the knowledge you gained from the CeMAP Module 1 Online course and expands that knowledge into more advanced topics. Each module is broken down as follows:
- CeMAP Module 2: This module will equip you with an in-depth understanding of the mortgage application process. You’ll learn what products are available and the issues borrowers may experience after completion, as well as get to grips with mortgage law
- CeMAP Module 3: This final module teaches you how to apply the knowledge you gained during Modules 1 & 2 to realistic scenarios you may face as a Mortgage Adviser
As UK mortgages are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), it has become mandatory for students to earn their ‘licence to practice’ by gaining the essential qualifications required to legally work in this sector, and to be able to offer professional mortgage advice.
The CeMAP Modules 2 & 3 certification is an RQF level 3 qualification, awarded by The London Institute of Banking & Finance and accredited by Ofqual and with 80% of Mortgage Advisers holding CeMAP qualifications in the UK, it has become the benchmark certification to obtain in this industry.
This online course can be accessed at a time and place that suits you, and is made up of interactive and stimulating quizzes, video tutorials and questions to help you confidently pass the exam. Upon successful completion of CeMAP Modules 2 & 3 exams (as well as the CeMAP Module 1 exam), you’ll be able to begin applying for jobs in practising firms, banks, or work as an independent Adviser.
Our students typically complete the CeMAP Modules 2 & 3 course within 6 months, (which is equivalent to around 140 hours of learning). During these 6 months, you will have full access to our eLearning training material (which can be extended if required at an additional fee).
In addition to this, you’ll also receive unlimited Tutor Support, which enables you to discuss any specific topics you are finding difficult to understand with one of our experienced mentors.
This course is eligible for a TOTUM PRO Card. Details on how to receive this card will be sent out after enrolment.
Is the CeMAP Module 2 & 3 qualification right for me?
This CeMAP Modules 2 & 3 online course has been created for students who prefer to self-study from the comfort of their own home, at a pace, location and time that suits them. If you find it easier to learn in a group setting, our CeMAP Virtual Classroom training course may be more suited to you.
There are no prerequisites to enrol on the CeMAP Modules 2 & 3 course, however it is recommended that you first complete the CeMAP Module 1 course and exam (if you have not already done so). It is also beneficial for students to have basic maths skills and be able to read and write English at an intermediate level.
Where could the qualification take me next?
CeMAP qualifications are highly recognised and are a mark of excellence in the finance industry. There is always a requirement for Mortgage Advisers and due to the shortfall of qualified candidates, students who have CeMAP certifications are currently in high demand.
Whether you wish to work as a self-employed Mortgage Adviser, or work for a bank or practising firm, you must first complete and successfully pass all 3 CeMAP modules and exams. (If you haven’t already, enrol onto the CeMAP Module 1 course and then pass the exam to earn your full CeMAP qualification).
Other job roles you could apply for include:
- Private Banking Assistant – £33k*
- Relationship Support Assistant – £33k*
- Protection Adviser – £50k*
- Business Owner – Mortgage Adviser – £30-£55k+*
Working as a Mortgage Adviser can be incredibly rewarding; as well as job satisfaction, Mortgage Advisers receive excellent commission rates. Average earnings of a Mortgage Broker in the UK start at around £30k* per year, with the potential to exceed £50k when targets have been met.
As you develop your career and grow your experience in the sector, you will have further opportunities to apply for senior managerial positions that pay considerably higher.
