Mortgage network, Home Loan Partnership (HLP), has launched a training academy to help its members with ongoing training, competence and supervision requirements.
The training academy will offer a number of two-day courses throughout the UK, including one aimed at those looking to attain the CeMAP qualification, and another targeting those hoping to become designated supervisors. It is also launching distance learning support for CeMAP and an e-learning zone will be set up on its website by March. This will contain continuing professional development material and other training documents.
Steve Hoare, managing director of HLP, said: ‘HLP membership is available to everyone, however, we want to work with those who are already qualified, or those who are showing a commitment to do so in the next few months. We are not providing a haven for those looking for a way around qualification.’
l HLP has also boosted the number of lenders on its direct submission panel to 30. Members of its Gold and Platinum schemes can now access network’s application forms from HLP’s sourcing software.
Lenders on this panel now include Abbey National, Halifax, Nationwide and NatWest. Sub-prime business is dealt with through Solent Mortgage Services or The Finance Centre.
