Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP)

CeMAP Certificate in Mortgage Advice (Module 1) - Virtual Classroom

Course Overview

Are you thinking about becoming a Mortgage Adviser? First of all, you need to have a professional certification like CeMAP® before you can give mortgage advice to people legally. The reason for this is due to the fact that all UK mortgages are heavily regulated by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority).

With 80% of UK Mortgage Advisers holding this certification, this is the benchmark for teaching you the different regulations in the mortgage sector, whilst also teaching you the different factors that can affect your client’s personal financial plans.

However, this is just the first step. If you want to become a fully qualified Mortgage Adviser, you will also need to study CeMAP Modules 2 & 3

We're proud of our excellent rating on Trustpilot, with over 14,000 reviews from our past students.

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.
