Why Choose the NNA for Your Notary Training

The NNA makes it simple for California Notaries to renew their commission. Renewing Notaries are required to take a minimum 3-hour training course. They must also take the Notary exam and submit a new application and Live Scan fingerprints. For your convenience, the NNA offers live training locations throughout the state of California, and the Notary exam can be taken immediately afterwards. Choosing one of our renewal packages helps you meet the state's requirements for working as a commissioned Notary Public.

California Notary licenses are issued by the Secretary of State. Training from the NNA has been approved by the Secretary of State.
