This class helps you prepare for the New York State Notary Public Examination and provides you with a comprehensive view of the notary public office. Confusing laws, concepts and procedures are clearly explained, and examples are given to illustrate situations that a notary is likely to encounter. Topics include avoiding conflicts of interest, maintaining professional ethics, charging proper fees, when to defer to an attorney and minimizing legal liability. Learn how to properly execute acknowledgments and affidavits, and how to administer oaths and affirmations, as well as inform yourself about what you cannot do as a notary within New York State, such as performing marriages or certifying copies of public records.
A "prep" course such as this one is a must for notary candidates to become fully aware of the authority, duties, and responsibilities relating to this important public office.
