Become a Notary
How do I get started?
Becoming a notary or renewing your notary commission is a lengthy and sometimes confusing process and can be a significant financial investment. Some of us are fortunate and have an employer who will pay for the expense, but for some, we take on the entire cost. And there are many choices to make. Do you take a live class or an online class? Which format best suits your learning needs and schedule, and helps you pass the exam the first time? Then there are the supplies—some are required, such as the Journal (but should you use the softback or hardback?).
