Utah Notary Public Training Workshop

Why should I become a Notary Public?  Millions of Americans serve as Notaries Public to protect consumers from fraud and identity theft.  The demand is high as notaries serve businesses, industries and private individuals.  The ratio of notaries to citizens is 1 in 72 people in the US.

Notaries witness and authenticate the signing of our most important  documents and transactions, such as new mortgages, powers of attorney, contracts, adoption papers, advance medical directives and other transactions in our everyday lives. It’s a great way to earn a little extra income or improve your resume and career.
