Institute aims to bridge the CeMap learning gap

A support package from the Institute of Financial Ser^_vices aims to help

sers pass the CeMap bridge paper for mortgage intermediaries.

The package includes revision notes, multiple-choice tests and model answers.

The CeMap bridge paper is for advisers who already have the Certificate

for Fin^_ancial Advisers or FPC and is recognised by the MCCB as one of the

accredited routes to mortgage advice qualification. The syllabus of the

bridge paper is based on selected parts of the three papers which make up

the full CeMap and consists of 40 multiple-choice questions and three

written answers to case studies.

The support package provides revision notes for CeMap papers one and two,

which are a condensed version of the study man^_ual, 100 multiple-choice

question and answers based on the CeMap paper and the December 1999 paper

three together with model answers and examiners&#39 comments.

CeMap marketing director Rachel Gosling says: “While advisers can bec^_ome

competent without qual-
ifications, they prove unequivocally that they

have reached a certain standard. We recognise it is very challenging to get

a qualification and that is why we are providing support.”

Nice to be in control

If anyone is still able to follow David Playfair&#39s logic(?) (MoneyMarketing, March 30), let me briefly finalise the issue.I confess to ignorance but only of clairvoyance, not product knowledge.My own circumstances allowed me to finish a 25-year mortgage in 14 years,paying what I wanted when I wanted, not whatever was demanded whether Iliked it or […]
