The expectation for Notaries to perform their duties with professionalism is high. When you’re newly commissioned, your first notarizations can be intimidating. The same goes for those who don’t notarize with regularity to feel confident from one appointment to the next.

Arm yourself with a resource you can review over morning coffee or on a lunch break. This 20-minute e-learning module covers the best practices of proper notarization to help you provide superior service every time. 

  • Notarize with confidence and avoid mistakes by learning the five steps of a proper notarization.
  • Be poised, not perplexed, when approached with common notarial acts like jurats and acknowledgments.
  • Confirm what you learned with a 10-question quiz at the end of the training to make sure you retain the information.

As a bonus, the Notary Quick-Start Training includes a downloadable quick-start guide that you can print and take with you for added support.

And for those who notarize infrequently, you’ll be glad to know you have 9 months of unlimited access to the course and quick-start guide.

There’s more to notarization than just stamping and signing a form. This concise online course can save you from feeling flustered by not knowing what to do.

We are constantly updating our online courses to include the latest law, information, and best practices. Our online courses are designed to give you the entire educational experience that you need in order to complete and advance your Notary practice.
