Who should take these courses?

Current Texas Notaries Public (as a refresher), current Texas Process Servers for Continuing Education, and those interested in becoming a Texas Notary Public.

Why should you enroll in these courses?

A Texas Notary Public is personally liable for negligence or fraud in the performance of the duties of the office. The Notary Public assumes personal liability for the full extent of damages caused by a breach of his or hers’ official duty. In addition to civil liability, Texas Notaries Public may be subject to criminal prosecution and the revocation or suspension of their notary public commission by the Texas Secretary of State’s office.

There are currently no requirements for any type of “Formal Training” for Texas Notaries Public. However, as you will learn in this course, Texas Gov’t. Code Ann. § 406.009 gives the Texas Secretary of State the authority to reject an application, or suspend or revoke the commission of any Notary Public for “good cause”. “Good Cause” includes:

  • • – the failure to comply with Section 406.017;
  • • – a final conviction for a violation of law concerning the regulation of the conduct of notaries’ public in this or another state;
  • • – the imposition on the notary public of an administrative, criminal, or civil penalty for a violation of a law or rule prescribing the duties of a notary public;

This means that even though there are no requirements for formal training, a Texas Notary Public is still expected to know and more importantly follow the laws and regulations governing his or her commission.

By the way, what is not mentioned above are the monetary fines that can also be imposed if any of the laws are violated. So, not only can a Texas Notary Public loose his or her commission, the individual could be looking at some pretty hefty fines depending on the severity of the violation committed (and believe me, this does happen).

Unfortunately, the excuse “I didn’t know” does not come into play. Before you start notarizing documents, it is your responsibility to learn the rules and regulations governing your Texas Notary Public commission.

DISCLAIMER: Completion of this course does not award you a Texas Notary Public Commission.

TEXAS LIVE NOTARY2PRO SIGNING AGENT COURSES

Notary2Pro Signing Agent Courses are now being taught live in a classroom environment in San Antonio, Texas by an approved Notary2Pro Authorized Trainer!!

What does this mean?

San Antonio, Texas notaries and those in surrounding areas, interested in becoming Notary2Pro certified, can now take a live course, that includes the same great training and information offered in the Notary2Pro online training courses.

Those who complete the live training will still need to take and pass the Notary2Pro online certification test. Students who successfully complete the course and pass the certification test will be considered Notary2Pro Graduates, and enjoy all the same privileges enjoyed by students who complete Carol Ray’s online course.

How does this training differ from the online course?

  • The Advanced Course will be a half day training (morning).
  • The Reverse Mortgage Course will be a half day training (afternoon)
  • Each course will be taught separately and will be priced separately.
