Electronic Notary Public Education

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Course Description
E-Notary = Paperless Transactions
Must be a current North Carolina Commissioned Notary Public. Electronic notarization is the process of applying an electronic notary signature and seal onto an electronic document in a completely electronic and paperless transaction.  Although a number of technological tools are used, the process maintains the traditional safeguards of requiring the E-Notary and the signer to be in the same physical location and for the identity of the signer to be verified by the E-Notary.

You will need this required course to obtain a commission as a Electronic Notary Public in North Carolina.  This course is highly recommended to all current Notaries who wish to become an Electronic Notary.

You must present a current, unexpired state or federal photo ID. Temporary paper copies of your NC driver’s license are not accepted. A passport is acceptable identification.  All identification documents must show your current legal name.

You are required to download a digital copy of the Electronic Notary manual. It is recommended that you read the Electronic Notary Manual prior to your class date.
