Notary Public Training
Certain legal documents, such as property deeds, wills and business agreements, require the impartial signature of a Notary Public. A Notary Public screens signers of important legal documents, confirming identities, and more.
This 8 hour course prepares students to become a commissioned/appointed Notary Public.
If you are at least 18 years old, have a High School diploma or GED and can satisfactorily complete this workshop, you can apply for your Notary Public Commission. If you have ever been convicted of a felony you must contact the NC Secretary of State Office to determine your eligibility. This class will teach you what you need to know before applying for your Notary Public Commission. The Notary Public Guidebook 2016 edition is required and available in the Forsyth Tech bookstore. This manual must be purchased and available on the first day of class
