CeMAP registrations up 16pc
The CeMAP qualification has been established for over a decade, with the majority of UK mortgage advisers holding the qualification.
Phil Hall, special adviser to the ifs, said: “Annual growth of well over 10% is another sign of strength for the mortgage market.
“With thousands of individuals choosing to become mortgage professionals this will not only ensure that rising demand for mortgage advice is met but that fresh blood is available to replace those who are retiring or switching careers.
“Mortgage advisers are quite rightly being held in increasingly high esteem, the housing market remains fairly buoyant and so entering the mortgage advice sector is now a viable career option for many.
“As a result we expect demand for the industry benchmark CeMAP® qualification to continue on an upward trajectory.”
