Frequently Asked Questions

CeMAP Professional is designed for CeMAP or Advanced CeMAP holders. CeMAP Advanced Professional is for those who have achieved the higher Level 4 CeMAP Diploma or DipMAP qualifications.

You will need to sign into your MyLIBF account and make declarations to confirm that you hold the correct title, you have carried out and scheduled your CPD and that you agree to our Code of Ethics.

Please have your card details ready for payment. The whole process should take no longer than 5-10 minutes before you receive confirmation on your success.

At this stage, you won't need your CPD records or your qualification certificate to hand. 

The content of your Continued Professional Development needs to be related to the mortgage industry and/or your mortgage advice role.

No, at the application stage your CPD records will not be needed.  

However, we will send email requests to a random sample of applicants asking to see their CPD records in an audit assessment to ensure that sufficient hours have been completed.

We’ve made CPD compulsory for CeMAP professionals. If we find that CPD is not being undertaken we do have a misconduct process to follow which could result in withdrawal of CeMAP Pro status.

Mortgage related CPD is in addition to the development hours you carry out to retain your Statement of Professional Standing (SPS). This is because the CPD points for SPS are related to your role as retail investment adviser. 

However, some content will be suitable for both, for example equity release, as this can affect both borrowing decisions and retirement strategies. Please contact us if you have any queries on this overlap.
