    Training as a mortgage advisor query

    Training as a mortgage advisor query 16th May 19 at 3:38 AM
    I know this isn't what this section of the forum is for, but I'm hoping a mortgage advisor reads this and can answer a few questions, please.

    I'm considering doing CeMap training with the intention of joining a network as a self-employed advisor and being supervised by the network while I gain competent advisor status. I believe there are a few networks that accept newly qualified advisors, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    What I really want to know is how viable it is to be a part-time self-employed advisor and how much of my workload could be carried out outside normal 9-5 working hours?

    Any advice on starting a career in this field would be greatly appreciated.
