The courses will provide the opportunity for administrators to upskill, for recent graduates to begin their career in mortgage advice, and for professionals in other careers to transition into the sector.
Primis and TMA Club will provide CeMAP 1, 2 and 3 courses and exams will be available for 15 candidates per group. To ensure the course fits in around individuals’ lives and work, the courses will take place in a virtual classroom, with CeMAP 1 taking four days and CeMAP 2 and 3 combined taking a further 8-10 weeks to complete. Each module culminates into a two-hour exam consisting of multiple-choice questions which can be taken at home or at test centres depending on each candidate’s needs.
Dave Woodbridge, regional sales director at Primis, said: “This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for Primis and TMA to work closely with the LIBF to provide additional support in achieving the CeMAP qualification. Helping to develop the advisers of the future and giving individuals their first steps into working within this fantastic industry makes us very proud. I thank the LIBF for their fantastic support in helping us launch the programme.”
John Somerville, Head of Financial Services for LIBF, added: “It has been a pleasure to work with such a forward-thinking organisation like Primis who are keen to bring bright new talent into the mortgage industry. We are proud to work with them as one of our partners for CeMAP training, and firmly believe this is a fantastic opportunity for all new mortgage advisers who wish to join the Primis network.”
