***IMPORTANT NOTE*** All California Notary applicants are required to submit a Certificate of Completion before a Notary Commission will be granted. If you are planning to become a Notary Public for California, there are only two (2) ways to receive a Certificate of Completion:
1)The Secretary of State requires all notary applicants to complete an approved 6-hour Notary course, even if the applicant has been commissioned previously. Once completing a 6-hour class, subsequent re commissioning in 4 years will only require a 3-hour refresher course. All of our Notary courses are approved by the Secretary of State for meeting this requirement. If you take your 6-hour course by attending one of our live notary seminars, at the end of the 6 hour seminar, your Certificate of Completion will be delivered to you. When you register for a 6-hour Notary class at one of our many locations, you will automatically be registered to take the California State Notary Examination which always follows the seminar at the same location. You will need submit the Certificate of Completion along with your Notary application to the State Exam Proctors. Our staff members will be present to assist you with any questions during this entire process.
2) The second way to receive your required Certificate of Completion is to complete the required 6-hours of study at home or in your office at your convenience. You will be required to sign an affidavit stating that you took at least 6-hours to complete the course before we can grant you the Certificate of Completion. Our Notary Home Study Course also been approved by the Secretary of State so your Certificate of Completion will allow you to complete your commission process just as if you attended a live seminar. Simply follow the instructions found in the Notary Home Study Course and fax over the included Registration form and affidavit to 909-388-1796. Once you have received your Certificate of Completion, follow the instructions included in the course for locating a test site in your area. Be sure to take your Certificate of Completion with you to the test site. California has hundreds of testing sites and dates all over California so finding a testing location will be simple. Of course, you may always choose to test at one of our locations by registering for a live notary class in your area. If you elect to take your notary exam at one of our locations, please be sure to register first or the staff will be unable to allow you into the facility for testing.
Please note that the fees for our "Live Seminars" include the administrative costs of issuing your Certificate of Completion, however; since there is no charge to complete the Notary Home Study Course, we do charge an administrative fee of $29.95 for issuing your Certificate of Completion if you intend to use this Home Study Course without attending one of our "Live Seminars" to satisfy your educational requirements. To request your Certificate of Completion using the Notary Home Study Course alone to complete your 6-hour educational requirements, please follow the instructions below.
