Become a California Notary Public

As a notary public in the State of California, you have UNLIMITED financial liability on EVERY document you notarize. If you are a notary for your employer, your employer could also be held liable for your mistakes. All too often people take the office of Notary Public lightly, which is a huge mistake. Even though your state does not require education, it could keep you out of trouble. The California Online Notary Course is the fastest and easiest way for you to learn what to do and what not to do and how to protect yourself as a notary. Whether you are a new or current notary public in California, you should spend some time learning the laws. The cost of this course is much less expensive than just 1 hour consulting an attorney.

The California Online Notary Course includes:
  • 2+ Hours of Streaming Video
  • 3 Months of Unlimited Access
  • Asset Protection Information
