The Institute of Financial Services is developing a new stand-alone qualification in commercial mortgages.
The CeCM qualification is being developed in partnership with the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers.
The single-module qualification will open for registrations this week. Learning materials are expected to roll out in March 2006.
NACFB chief executive Keith Heron says: “The Ifs’s Certificate in Commercial Mortgages provides an excellent grounding for anyone wanting to give advice on commercial mortgage products. Brokers who pass the examination will be eligible for a discount on full or associate NACFB membership.”
