California Notary Public Seminar Information

Everything you need to become a California Notary Public in one place!

Let us help you take the hassle out of receiving your notary commission.

          Our 3- and 6-hour Live Notary Certification Seminars are offered in Elk Grove, Rancho Cordova, and Roseville/Lincoln. They are small, interactive, hands-on, and at the same time fun and entertaining.

     To make the day complete we arrange to have the State Notary Exam given after our Live Seminars and we are so confident that you will pass that we offer a Money Back Guarantee!

     We have on-site Live Scan Fingerprinting and Passport Photos available (a requirement for all new and returning notaries public).

     Also for the career-minded notary or those who want a better understanding of the office of the Notary Public, we offer advanced training in a Certified Loan Document Signing Class. This follows the State Exam after our regularly scheduled live seminars.

  Check Location and Schedules here.

Which Course - 3- or 6-hour do I need?

          The 3-hr course is for returning Notaries who have not had a lapse in their Commission. 

          The 6-hr course is for first time Notaries, returning notaries who wish a better understating of the latest notary laws, and notaries whose Commission has lapsed.
