Government institutions, banks, real estate and mortgage companies, plus many other businesses are seeking notaries. All prospective notaries must complete a course approved by the California Secretary of State. Our approved course will give you the most updated notary information and the knowledge you need to perform the duties correctly and to pass the state exam, which you can take immediately following the course. Becoming a notary & notary loan signing agent can be a great way to earn extra money, start your own business, or enhance your current career. Class fee includes valuable 70-page manual, notary public handbook, certificate of completion, and sample forms notaries use every day. Before signing up for this class, check to see that you meet eligibility requirements for becoming a notary; see www.sos.ca.gov/business/notary and click “qualifications.”  Note: Due to strict State regulations, no one is admitted after class begins. Check-in begins at 7:30; class must begin promptly at 8:00. So have your current, official photo ID ready.   Students wishing to take the state Notary Public Exam immediately following the class may register for it from 3:30-4pm.  Note: Bring an official photo ID, two #2 pencils, a 2”x2” passport-sized color photo and a separate $40 check made payable to the “Secretary of State,” if you intend to take the state exam. If you can’t stay for the same-day exam, there are many other opportunities to take the exam.
