Description of courses

The Basic training webinars cover the rules, regulations and best practices for Oregon Notaries Public. We explain how to properly identify the signer, what to record in your journal, and the requirements of an Oregon Notarial Certificate. There’ll even be a chance to practice notarizing! The Basic training meets the education requirements for those applying for a commission.  You will need to download these practice sheets to complete the webinar.

Advanced notary webinars are labeled "Current Notaries Only." These trainings are not appropriate for those who are not experienced, commissioned notaries. They do not meet the training qualifications for a notary application and will not help you pass the exam. These webinars cover employee notary issues, notario and elder abuse fraud, journaling witnesses, challenging notarial certificates and electronic notarization, among other topics. ​ Please note: if you are a notary but your commission has expired, you will need to take the Basics training again, rather than the Advanced; the advanced training does not fulfil requirements for re-application if your commission has expired.
