CeRER® - Certificate in Regulated Equity Release


The Certificate in Regulated Equity Release (CeRER®) is an FCA-approved RQF level 3 qualification specific to the UK.

In order to achieve a CeRER®, you must first pass a Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP®). A further module, consisting of two units on Equity Release (ER), then completes your CeRER® training.

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is responsible for regulating the marketing and sales of equity release products. This includes lifetime mortgages and home reversion plans.

If you plan to advise on equity release, you are required to hold an appropriate qualification. Upon completion of the CeRER®, you will meet these regulatory requirements and have developed a thorough knowledge of the equity release environment.
