Class Description


What you'll learn in this notary training:

Whether you want to boost your income, create a new job opportunity, provide a service to your community, or increase your value to your current employer, this is the perfect opportunity. Successful Notaries are valuable in almost any industry: real estate, legal, medical, and banking to name just a few.

This livestream seminar is designed specifically for virtual learning, and responds to the current demand in the field. You will be ready to take the official notary exam and practice as a safe and effective notary. Students are eligible to access our private Facebook page to ask questions, watch webinars and receive updates.

The Official Notary Exam will take place at a separate location, and completion of this class entitles students to take the Official Notary Public Exam for up to 2 years after class completion, and to repeat the class free of charge for one year.  A Proof of Completion for educational requirements will be issued in class.

    Maybe better lesson plan / structure would have helped. I need to retake the class.

    Sadly, I felt I was learning more from other people attending the class. So much time was wasted answering repetitive questions by one person and the instructor didn’t put a stop to it. I understand not understanding something once but the same question 3-4 times? Money wasted. At that rate I was better off taking an online course. Such a disappointment. The class had potential.

    The professor was funny and confusing which is great for comedy but not for a serious class . I feel like I have to take it over since it was not thoroughly explained .

Question from Esmeralda J.
Hello, how many times can you take the test?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Esmeralda. Students can take the test as many times as they want, there is no limit. However, they cannot take the exam twice in the same calendar month. There are ten different exams that rotate monthly. Hope this helps!
