Six-hour Certification Course

Anyone seeking appointment as a notary public must satisfactorily complete a Secretary of State-approved six-hour course of study prior to appointment. NOTE: No matter how many notary public commission terms you have held in the past, you are required to take a state approved six-hour course at least one time.

Our six-hour Certification Course is the easiest way for you to fulfill this requirement.

Three-hour Renewal Course

Current California notaries public with a valid commission, who have completed a six-hour course of study at least once, can complete an approved three-hour refresher course prior to reappointment. IMPORTANT: A three-hour refresher course is only acceptable if you apply for reappointment (taking the class, submitting an application, and passing the state-approved exam) before your current commission expires. If your commission expires before you complete the course, you must take another six-hour certification course before being reappointed.

Our three-hour Renewal Course is the easiest way for you to fulfill this requirement.
