Notary Prep Course:
This 44 hour course is an introduction to notary public fundamentals, with an emphasis on the General Knowledge component o the statewide exam. There will be some discussion regarding the scenario component; however, this course is geared toward learning the basics of notarial law as covered in the text.
Required text: 2014 Edition of: "Fundamentals of Louisiana Notarial Law and Practice," which is the Louisiana Notary Public examination official study guide and is available through The Louisiana Secretary of State website. The 2014 is required and costs $90 (subject to change). PLEASE ORDER THIS BOOK BEFORE the first day of class.
Out-of-State Residents are not permitted to take this exam, and in order to qualify as a notary public in Louisiana you must be registered to vote.
The Notary examination is Saturday, December 6, 2014. Registration deadline with the La. Secretary of State is October 22, 2014. Forms can found at www.sos.louisiana.gov or call (225) 922-0507 for further information. You MUST register for the December 6th exam by October 22, 2014 - NO EXCEPTIONS.
Paralegal Credit: Upon successfully passing the statewide Notary exam, students can use their Notary Commission on the place of one (1) course in the Paralegal Institute (The Legal Research & Writing and the Basic & General courses not to be substituted.) Students must shoe proof of passing the Notary Exam (ex. Notary Commission) in order to receive credit. Paralegal registration fees do not apply to this course.
Dates: September 2 - November 20, 2014
Notary Scenario Course:
We are not offering a class geared solely to the most difficult portion of the notary public examination: the written Scenario. This program will be helpful to students who have already take the Notary Exam Prep course or who performed poorly on the Written Scenario portion of the exam. Some attention will also be given to the critical knowledge section of the Scenario portion.
This class will start with the general writing tips, then move onto the substantive information necessary to write a proper legal instrument, worthy not only of a passing grade on the exam, but more importantly, worthy of sound notarial practice. Participants will use class time and personal time preparing notarial acts from scenario facts, which will be turned in to the instructor for useful and valuable critique. This course is geared to those who have already taken the exam and need further instruction for the Scenario portion of the exam. Participants should have thorough knowledge of the materials contained in the "Fundamentals of Louisiana Notarial Law and Practice."
