The Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMap) examination offered by the Chartered Institute of Bankers in Scotland (CIOBS) has now been accredited by the Mortgage Code Compliance Board (MCCB).
The new examination is CIOBS’s version of the original CeMAP qualification for brokers operating in Scotland, which was the result of a collaboration between CIOBS and the Institute of Financial Services (ifs).
Tess Joyce, assistant manager for business at CIOBS, said: ‘We have revised the look of the text to make it more user friendly and have taken on board student comments.’
The paper is also more flexible, with specific papers aimed at different nations. ‘We have a text for those wishing to sit the examination under Scottish, Welsh and English law, which have been separated so they are more comprehensive,’ said Joyce.
