What does a Notary training program do?

A notary is an official of integrity who has been appointed by the state government to oversee and serve as a witness during the signing of important documents. They ensure that the signers of important documents are indeed the people they claim to be, that they are willing to sign without duress or intimidation and are fully aware of what the document they are signing contains. 

One of the main components of their job is to be impartial. They cannot act in instances where they may have a personal bias or personal interest. They are never allowed to refuse service to a person based on nationality, race, religion, politics or sexual orientation. 

Participants who attend Greensboro’s one-day Notary Public Workshop, and successfully pass the Notary Public examination, are eligible to apply for the North Carolina Notary Public Commission.

To attend this program, students must be 19​, have a high school diploma or GED and have never been convicted of a felony. Participants must bring a current driver’s license to class to be eligible to sit for the exam.

Where Does a NOTARY Work?

Notaries can work in a variety of different places including, but not limited to, banks, schools, real estate firms, law offices, corporate offices and government offices. Some notaries also run their own independent businesses.
