​Renewing Your Notary

Renewing notaries are required by law to take a three-hour notary refresher course to be re-commissioned. This class, approved by the California Secretary of State, includes a review of all laws and regulations. This class is designed to help you prepare and pass the State Notary examination. This state approved class meets the statutory requirement for renewing notaries. In addition, you will learn tips on how to be successful as a professional notary. You will receive a Certificate of Completion allowing you to take the State proctored examination.

This is a not-for-credit course. As such, you will not earn units and the class will not be reflected on your banner schedule or on transcripts.
