Refresh your notary knowledge and get answers to your questions by attending a Secretary of State sponsored seminar for current and future notaries public. The free seminar is a thorough examination of notary basics: what a notary is, responsibilities and liabilities, how to notarize, notary certificates, and maintaining the notary journal. This is your chance to talk with a representative of the state agency that regulates notaries, and to participate in lively discussions about notary procedures, best practices and regulation.
The Secretary of State also offers advanced classes. Advanced notary public seminars are appropriate for those who are experienced, commissioned notaries. They do not meet the training qualifications for a notary application and will not help you to pass the exam. These advanced classes discuss employee notary issues, notario and elder abuse fraud, difficult certificates, and journaling witnesses, among other topics.
