10-Day Competent Mortgage Adviser Course

To be a qualified Mortgage Adviser you will need to pass two exams to achieve your Certificate in Mortgage Advice (CMA) and then apply to work under a principal compliance network to operate your business.
Most training companies arm you with the answers to pass the CMA exams. At Ingard we think differently. We know that simply passing exams will not provide you with the skills which you will need to generate business and work compliantly. This is why it is our mission to empower you with all of the resources which you will need to start a successful business.

Ingard are offering a fast-track business opportunity where our experienced Compliance Manager will provide face-to-face training through a 10-day intensive course. This will give you the knowledge to pass the first exam and the sales skills to enable you to kick-start your business. You will then be able to start taking on your first clients under our supervision, whilst remotely accessing our suite of e-learning videos to prepare you for the final exam.

By the end of our intensive 10-day course you will have the technical knowledge, sales skills and contacts needed to be a qualified Mortgage Adviser. And our support doesn’t end there, during this period, we’ll help you to kick-start your business by:

  • Providing professional letters and emails which you can send to accountants and estate agents to help you to generate referral business
  • Producing personalised branded stationery to help you to convey a professional company image
  • Providing supervision, compliance, administrative and business support through our Compliance Network
