  Take a Private Notary Class
Loan Signing Class
Live with an Instructor
from your Office or Home!

  We know that sometimes you want flexiblity.


There are as many reasons to take the class in your home or office as there are individuals.

  • Many people learn faster with private instruction rather than in a classroom setting.

  • Some people learn best on their own and only need an instructor to answer tough questions or provide clarifiation of new concepts.

  • Receive the entire study guide immediately via email or download. We will give you up to 90 days to schedule your private class. The private class is strictly between yourself and the notary instructor. It is designed to greatly enhance the effectiveness of the overall self-study program by giving you direct and exclusive access to a professional notary instructor for up to two (2) hours as a part of your study program.

  • Taking a class with a private instructor for one hour a day (2 days) or two (2) hours in one day would allow you complete flexibity to have the private class guided by the instructor or by yourself with the ability to focus only on the areas of greatest concern to you.

  • If you do not already use SKYPE, it only takes about five (5) minutes to download and use. We have created a video below to help you set up Skype on your computer.

  • We are using the SKYPE technology to enable us to share content with you on your computer screen during the class. If you are uncomfortable with "face-to-face" imaging between yourself and the instructor, you will have complete control to turn off that feature using SKYPE.

How do I become a Certified Loan Signer?

Loan signers are notaries who specialize in notarizing loan documents. Most mobile notaries become loan signers because of the lucrative potential within that part of the notary business. Loan signers are called upon to travel to homes or offices and obtain the signatures for lending documents.

Becoming Certified is essential if a notary wishes to be successful in marketing his or her services as a loan signer. Our Loan Signing Class includes the Certification exam and Certificate. The Loan Signing Exam is given on-line at your convenience in your own home or office. Our class fee includes two separate attempts at passing the Certification exam.

Do I need to register with the Secretary of State or fill out an application before attending the live class seminar?
No. All seminar attendees will complete their application to become a notary during the seminar. You will be automatically registered to take the state exam on that same day. There is no need to contact the Secretary of State or CPS prior to your seminar. All of this is completed automatically with your registration.
What if I change my mind and decide that I want to attend a live seminar class after I register for this private class?

We can transfer your registration to a live notary seminar class should you later decide that the private notary class will not work to your best advantage or you find that technical difficulties will make the private class too difficult an option. If you have not scheduled your class with the instructor via email or phone, simply call us and we will place you into a live notary seminar class of your choice at no additional charge as long as there is space available. There are no refunds for any reason but we will apply the difference you paid for the private class and the live seminar you are attending towards the purchase of notary supplies, notary seals and the passport photo taken at the class site. We can only apply the funds towards purchases.

For example: Suppose you have registered for the 6-hour private class at $159.95 and then choose to transfer to a live seminar. The cost of the live seminar is $69.95 which allows $90 to be applied towards the notary supplies. The Gold Package is $74.95, and the passport photo is $10, leaving a balance of $5.05 credit which might be applied to any other supply purchase.
