Notary Skills, Part 2: Advanced Notary Skills

For most banks, performing notarizations is a service that customers and the general public have come to see as both basic and expected. In today’s increasingly litigious environment, Notaries must not only be highly skilled, but more knowledgeable than ever before.

This webinar will equip notaries with the broad-based, higher-level information that is necessary to ensure proper execution of notarial services in any given situation. It targets the notarial acts that are indigenous to most states. The emphasis will be on issues all notaries commonly face.


  • Overview of notary basics
  • Notary legal & liability issues
  • Interstate issues
  • International issues
  • Types, purposes & contexts of notarial acts
  • Bank documents versus customer documents
  • Recent legal issues and changes


Any experienced notary working in any capacity for any financial institution.
