Equity Release Online Workshop 

One Day Online Revision Workshop


£275 including VAT

The Online Workshop

You’re interested in the burgeoning later life lending market, getting some leads and enquiries but realise you need to pass the relevant exam first.

You’re very busy and would prefer to attend a one day workshop in person, to equip yourself to take the exam.

Paul runs a highly successful one day programme designed to do just that. So long as you remember much from your CeMAP 2 or CF6 exams, you’ll learn the parts of the syllabus that are fairly new or you’ve not touched before, thus preparing you to take the exam the following week.

Interactive, pacey and non-stop plus you’ll hear experiences from the other brokers and expert guidance from Paul.

You also have access to other programmes which are on-demand to help you:

  • Equity Release Revision Guide in PDF format online
  • Equity Release Test Pack in PDF format online
  • Equity Release Podcast Recordings streamed online

These have a value of £75 on their own.

How it Works Online

Paul runs lots of online workshops from his purpose built Tivoli Studios in Cheltenham. A maximum of 10 people can make it on the workshop and they must be equipped with a PC or laptop that has a webcam and microphone either built in or attached. You need to be able to download a little bit of software for Zoom to operate but this is free.

Paul facilitates it all from his studios – the software is really easy.

You’ll be talking to each other, asking questions, watching Paul present and enjoying group exercises and discussions.

Is it intended for people to be able to pass the exam after the course?

That's the intention, but it all depends on how much you have kept from CeMAP and your general knowledge. We've had people (existing mortgage brokers) who took the exam that night and passed!

Some like to do some specimen questions and tests. Some like to rustle through our Revision Guide for a day or so. But they all take it soon after and pass. It does work.
