Can I follow another Notary Signing Agent on an assignment?

Is it legal in the state of Colorado to follow and observe another Certified Signing Agent during a loan signing?L.C., Colorado

To our knowledge Colorado law does not address this question, but following and observing another Signing Agent is never recommended. Lenders and title companies are obligated to protect sensitive consumer information under relevant federal laws, and this usually extends to all service providers, including Notary Signing Agents, who provide services in connection with a loan. This means the Notary Signing Agent has a duty to keep customer information private. Here is a link to an NNA Notary Bulletin article that addresses this issue. 

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors

On the FB groups for Notaries I see quite a few newbies using a mentor and taking them on their first few signings. I don't know where they got their training or if their states allow this, but I would never do it.
