U.S. Wide Online Notary Education Course

Thank you for your interest in this comprehensive notary course. The primary goal of this course is to provide you the protection you need from liability resulting from an improper notary act. This course is not required reading for those that are becoming a notary or renewing their notary commission. However, we strongly recommend notary education for new notaries and as a refresher for veteran notaries. Huckleberry Notary Bonding is more interested in advancing your understanding of proper notary law and protocol, protecting you and your employer, and the public from notary error and negligence by education. New and veteran notaries will benefit tremendously and your confidence and professionalism will be greatly enhanced.

Notaries play a vital role in the advancement of commerce, legal actions, and personal business in the United States. In the 21st century, transactions are no longer limited to paper documents. Some states now recognize the use of electronic documents. In order for notaries to keep up with changing technology and to be able to accommodate these new methods of conducting business, we have included in this course a chapter on electronic notarizations that may interest you.

To prepare notaries for their duties, this course explains the basic duties of a notary public. Huckleberry Notary Bonding is a state approved notary-bonding agency and we are only a phone call away to answer any questions and provides assistance.
