Mortgageforce is offering a practical training programme for mortgage brokers preparing to sit the CeMaP examination papers.

The broker said commercial training organisations are failing to address problems faced by mortgage brokers planning to sit the impending mortgage examinations, and predicts up to 10,000 advisers will fail to qualify by the December deadline.

Rob Clifford, managing director of Mortgageforce, said: ‘It is staggering how many advisers are unprepared for the qualification deadline. Anyone can register and order study material and many spend hundreds of pounds on courses, which pore through the detail of the syllabus and often bore the candidate rigid.’

Mortgageforce’s training prog-ramme pledges to take a different approach to commercial training organisations by focusing less on the finer details of the syllabus.

Clifford said: ‘Our approach is quite different. We instruct delegates to devise and focus on a strict home study programme, which can be supplemented by regular online support from our qualified examiners. Our training regime shows delegates how to get through the exams, rather than regurgitating the syllabus. We provide a strict revision process, which is a home-focused regime including email tutorials.’

Mortgageforce is offering financial contributions of up to £360 per broker towards monthly tutor support and cash subsidies worth £795 for the CeMaP training programme including 12 months of support via email. Brokers must have applied to and registered for the exam with the relevant institute to qualify for a subsidy.
