PA Notary Academy Basic Notary Courses
Please read all the information below before making a purchase.

Our Basic Notary course is the mandatory course required for new and renewing applicants. This seminar was developed by our staff and is approved by the state to meet the mandatory education requirement. It includes instruction in understanding the law, functions and general knowledge of a notary public. This year brings a few changes to the notary application process. The State Department has initiated an online filing system. Filing your application online will allow you to apply for and renew your notary commissions in an paperless application process. This year also eliminates the requirement for the State Senator signature. This new procedure will help eliminate paperwork, and expediates the processing time which provides you better customer service.
