about Notary Academy

An indispensable training program for notaries of all levels of experience.

With over 20 years of expertise, Notary Academy continues to offer education to commissioned notaries in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington (and growing)  and anyone wanting to become a CA notary (We teach the 6hour class).

Why Notary Academy,  after becoming a notary? It’s simple: Education is never-ending, and that includes your notary education.There are dozens of companies that support notary training, but not many that are dedicated to notary expertise once they’ve received their commission. That’s what we’re here for.

We provide an opportunity for notaries to increase their knowledge of notarial law, rules, and regulations via online training as well as opportunities to get their questions answered via our Lifeline Services.

Notary Academy is a California Secretary
of State approved vendor.
