College to offer Notary public class

Surry Community College will offer Notary Public Training on Tuesday, Nov. 17 and Thursday, Nov. 19 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at The Pilot Center, 612 East Main Street, Pilot Mountain. Tuition will be $71, and the cost of the required textbook will be $27.25 and will be given at first class session.

“Many businesses are required to have notarized signatures as a part of their normal business activity, and therefore employ persons who hold North Carolina Notary Public credentials,” the college said in a statement announcing the class.

This two-night, seven-hour course prepares students to become a Notary Public in North Carolina. Topics include notary qualifications, guidelines, and processes for notarizing documents. After passing the course test, students are eligible to submit an application to the Secretary of State to become a notary.

In order to take this class, students must legally reside in the United States, live or work in North Carolina, be at least 18 years old, possess a high school diploma or High School Equivalency diploma, be able to read and write English, have no felony convictions (some misdemeanors apply), and have a valid driver’s license or NC State ID.
