Financial Adviser School to offer CeMap


Would-be brokers have greater choice when taking the CeMap exam, as the Financial Adviser School will offer the standalone mortgage qualification from next month.

FAS will also let students take the CeMap as part of a wider Diploma for Financial Advisers qualification.

The new CeMap programme will consist of a six-month course providing training on the FSRE and CeMap 2 and 3 exams.

It will be conducted through remote-learning based sessions, workshops and other study tools.

Huddersfield-based FAS is not-for-profit and most of its students are sponsored by financial firms, though some pay their own way.

FAS head Darren Smith says: “We’re excited about this opportunity to broaden our support for the financial planning sector by helping to train the next generation of mortgage advisers and offering practicing advisers the opportunity to add to their skillset.”

FAS is owned by Old Mutual Wealth.
