Montana Online Notary Training
Notary 101 – The Basics is an eLearning program designed and created by the Notary & Certifications Section of the Montana Secretary of State’s Office for new Montana notary applicants. This course covers information that is necessary to know in order to successfully complete proper notarizations and pass the Montana Notary Examination.
The course is composed of 4 modules. Modules 1, 2, and 4 will each take about 30 minutes to complete. Module 3 takes about one hour to complete. You can take the course one module at a time, or continue through all modules at one sitting. If you start a module but are unable to finish it in one sitting, as long as you use the same computer you started the module with, you will be able to resume the module at the point you stopped.
This course is designed primarily to meet the examination requirement for new notary applicants, but it is also available as an excellent refresher course for currently commissioned notaries.
