National Notary Association Launches Online Notary Supervisor Training For Organizations That Employ Notaries

The National Notary Association, the leader in best practices, training, and advocacy for the nation’s 4.8 million Notaries, has announced the availability of its new Notary Supervisor Training program, an online course for managers, supervisors, and employers of Notaries that reduces an organization’s exposure to liabilities caused by notarial errors or misconduct. The announcement was made today at the National Notary Association’s 33rd Annual Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The recent foreclosure “robo-signing” crisis in the mortgage industry has drawn attention to the need for organizations to implement stronger compliance and controls. As they employ Notaries to help bolster their processes, they need strong in-house practices and procedures involving notarizations. This online course includes an overview of what Notaries are and what they do, an overview of state Notary laws and regulations, how proper supervision of Notaries benefits a business, and steps for developing sound policies for managing Notaries in the workplace.

Upon completion, organizations will be empowered to:

  • Assess, develop, and implement their written policies and procedures for managing staff Notaries
  • Supervise staff Notaries according to company policies and procedures
  • Perform a basic service review for each Notary
  • Track the status of their Notaries’ commissions, bonds, and insurance policies
  • Oversee internal and external education and training for their Notary staff

“Strong notarial practices and procedures can help organizations that employ Notaries reduce risk and protect their reputations,” said the National Notary Association’s Chief Executive Officer, Marc Reiser. “Notary Supervisor Training allows organizations to access the National Notary Association’s world-class notarial resources to build that competency from the comfort of their own offices.”
