500 mortgage professionals now qualified to CII Level 4

Press Release

The Society of Mortgage Professionals have announced that 500 mortgage advisers have already completed the CII Level 4 Certificate in Advanced Mortgage Advice since its launch just two years ago.

A survey of existing CII Level 3 Certificate holders also revealed that more than 70 per cent were planning to progress to Level 4, with 150 enrolling for the qualification during the last two months alone.

The RQF Level 4 Certificate was introduced by the CII in August 2014 to enable advisers to diversify their skills into areas such as bridging finance, auctions, financing foreign properties and other specialist types of mortgage lending. It puts mortgage and protection professionals on par with their investment counterparts.

"The fact that 500 advisers have already gained the extra qualification is testament to the ever-growing desire within the mortgage market for the highest level of professional qualification," stated Society of Mortgage Professionals head of professional development, Lee Travis.

"It is an ideal next-step for the 30,000 people who currently hold the CII Certificate in Mortgage Advice and only requires completion of one further unit - the R07 advanced mortgage advice - if R01 and CF6 are held."
