Reminder: New Indiana Notary continuing education requirement

Effective July 1, 2020, Indiana Notaries are now required to complete continuing education every two (2) years under Indiana Code § 33-42-12-2.

Required Notary Continuing Education

All Indiana Notaries must complete continuing education every two years, over the course of an 8-year commission.

The continuing education must be completed at INBiz.in.gov. To get started you must have an INBiz account and add your Notary Commission. Click here to download instructions on adding your notary Commission to an INBiz account and accessing continuing education.

Adding your commission provides you real-time access to your Notary information through the INBiz Dashboard. You will be able to confirm your information is up-to-date, determine your continuing education due date, and access all essential Notary actions (access continuing education, update address/email, update signature sample, update bond information, etc.)

Remember it is a statutory requirement to update information changes to the Indiana Secretary of State’s office within 30 days. Maintaining a current email and mailing address is vital to ensuring you receive all notifications from the state.

Failure to complete the continuing education will result in the expiration of your Notary commission. To avoid having your commission expire, be sure to complete the required continuing education on time.

For clarification, if I got my license in 2013 and the new law went into effect, this year 2020, do I need to take a continuing ED course now or can I wait next year, when I need to renew my license?

Been trying to reach someone, anyone, in the office in regards to retiring my commission. No one has contacted back and now I'm down to less than the 30? days I think you need to retire it.

National Notary Association

01 Feb 2021

Hello. You mentioned "retiring" your commission-do you mean you wish to resign it? If you need to update information regarding your Notary commission with the state directly, you will need to create an account at https://inbiz.in.gov/BOS/Home/Index. If you obtained your commission through the NNA, you can email our Customer Care team at services@nationalnotary.org to request assistance.
