Notary Public Training

Build your resume by developing the skills and confidence you need to perform official notary duties and pass the California State proctored notary exam, all in one straightforward day-long seminar.

This training is offered each semester through the HSU College of Extended Education & Global Engagement, in partnership with Develop Point Education (DPE), a designated California-Approved Provider for Required Notary Training. The DPE California Notary Training fulfills the California State six-hour education requirement for all new and renewing Notary commissions issued after July 1, 2005. DPE training satisfies the state requirement and guarantees you’ll pass your Notary exam.

The cost of the State-proctored Notary exam is an additional $40. Payment is by check only on the day of the exam, made payable to the California Secretary of State.

The live scan service is required for California notaries. Live scans are available for an additional fee at the notary class. Live scans are also available at some police and sheriff departments. Costs will vary based on where service is obtained and what is required.

A photo is also required for California notaries. Participants have the option to have their photo taken by the instructor on the day of class ($15, cash, check or credit card). Photos may also be obtained through a passport photo service.

Also, on the day of the class, participants will have the option to purchase a package that includes the photo, livescan seal, $15,000 bond and journal and thumbprint pad. Cost for this package will be $275. Payment (cash, credit card or check payable to "Develop Point Education") will be accepted at the class. Additional notary supplies will also be available at a discounted price to registered students on the day of the class.
