Where do your CeMAP® training courses take place?
Futuretrend's CeMAP® training courses are held in Enfield in North London. Our training centre is at 81 Southbury Road, Enfield EN1 1PJ
The centre is within easy reach of the M25 and North Circular if travelling by car. We are near to Enfield Town train station which is roughly 25 minutes from Liverpool street (Central London) by train.
Training takes place in an elegant victorian house, quiet and very conducive to learning and studying for CeMAP® .
Can I pay for the training in instalments?
Yes, we have an easy instalment policy that you can pay while attending our part time training. Please give us a call on 020 8443 2888 and we can discuss your options and put together a payment plan that fits you.
Do the course fees include Exam registration?
No, our training fees do not include the exam registration, this payment can be made direct to The London Institute of Banking & Financeor you can register with them through us.
Are there any extra costs that are not included in the price?
The price you are quoted is the price you pay with no hidden fees along the way.
If your courses are that good why are your prices considerably less than those of many of your competitors?
The answer is simple! In these hard times we are always looking to pass on as much savings as we can to our customers;Presently our overheads are covered by our IT training department which benefits via some funding from Enfield Council, we are therefore able to keep our CeMAP and CeFA training departments lean and efficient. Our reduced administration costs enable us to provide training at much better rates than our competitors whilst still achieving 90% + pass rates.
Additionally, we are not passing on the premiums charged for West End and City hotels and hired venues. We have our own training centre here in Enfield. We don't have to be assured of large numbers of attendees before we run a course like some other training providers do to justify how much they have to pay for hiring the space.
We have found much cheaper CeMAP® courses ...can you do yours any for any less?
We believe our courses are very fairly priced.
Poor quality training providers compete on discounts and rock bottom prices .. we would rather provide value added service and delivery.
Questions you must ask:
How many days training do they provide for CeMAP® 1? We provide 5 full days of CeMAP® teaching. Some will provide 4 days and ask you to take the exam on the 5th day and masquerade this as a 5 day course! The downside to that is that you might not be ready for the exam and you have no time to cancel.
How many days training do they provide for CeMAP® 2 & 3? Again we provide 5 full days of training for this and with this we will assess you, review and provide full feedback at the end.How many people do they have on a course? Anything over 12 means you will have trouble interacting with the tutor. We provide you with a highly focused environment away from all distractions; Our class size is a maximum of 10 students.... so you can be assured that you will study in a relatively small group.
In addition all our tutors will offer you post-course support . If you want to discuss anything outside the classroom or want to come for a meeting thereafter...it's all part of the service!
What is your method or style of teaching?
Our training is mainly tutor-led classroom based learning. You will be trained from start to finish by an experienced tutor working within the Financial industry taking you step by step through everything you need to know to pass your CeMAP® qualification.
Our method of study allows for the absorption of the CeMAP® program. We have created a winning combination of teaching principles and techniques that allows for a complete novice to change his / her vocation (whatever it was) to a lasting career as a Mortgage Advisor.
Can you help with seeking employment on completion of my full CeMAP® qualification?

We are also affiliated with many mortgage intermediaries and companies within the financial industry looking for fully qualified Mortgage Advisors. We will be more than happy, once you have passed your exams, to review your CV and then send it off to relevant organisations.
Occasionally, we have the business development managers of such organisations come to give talks to our students regarding progression routes and the options available to them within the industry upon attaining their CeMAP® qualification.
Please note that we strictly do not do go down the "we guarantee you a job" route in order to get your custom. We would strongly advise you to take a very cautious approach with any training company making such promises. Invariably all they are offering you is a self-employed role but you will pay a pretty premium for all this. After gaining your CeMAP® qualifications such roles will not be too hard to come by yourself. Don't get caught out this way!
I have no mortgage or financial background will this be a problem?
