Class Overview:

Our 6-Hour Live Notary Public Education Seminars are designed to prepare all new and renewing students to pass the State Exam on their first attempt.

We’ll not only discuss the latest laws and regulations, you’ll also review the fundamentals of Jurats, Affidavits, the Journal, fingerprinting, forms of identification, sworn statements, and more.

By the end of the day, you will be prepared to pass the State Exam, which will be presented at the end of the seminar.

  • This course satisfies the exam pre-requisite. There is the added convenience of taking the State Test immediately following the class.
  • For renewing your Notary Commission, it is recommended that you take the State Exam 6-12 months before the expiration to avoid a break in your commission. Processing of commissions is taking several months.
  • When you register for the class, you will receive a link to read the State Notary Handbook and to study 138 sample exam questions that will prepare you to pass. The extensive course covers all the new regulations, forms, and $10,000 fines and penalties.

State officials give the test.

Protecting Private Property Rights

When it comes to protecting private property rights and the real estate industry, Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS® is second to none. As the voice for real estate in the county, we are fierce advocates for public policy that encourages residential and commercial property ownership to support communities.

Whether it’s a local, state, or federal issue, if it involves the real estate industry, Santa Clara County Association of the REALTORS® is fighting to protect the real estate industry and the rights of private property owners.

The REALTOR® Action Fund

When it comes to advocacy REALTORS® band together as the REALTOR® Party, which is a powerful alliance of REALTORS® working to protect and promote homeownership and private property rights.

Simply put, the REALTOR® Party promotes policies and candidates that support your ability to do business, but we need your help. You can help by INVESTING in the REALTOR® Action Fund, (RAF). With the resources provided by the REALTOR® Action Fund we fight threats of costly rules, taxes, and regulations such as proposed taxes on services (your commission), fireplace retrofits, and point of sale regulations.

The REALTOR® Action Fund Victories

  • SCCAOR defeated a Bay Area wide fireplace replacement mandate that would have cost your clients on average over two thousand dollars at the point of sale.
  • SCCAOR defeated a City of Santa Clara proposed ordinance that would have discriminated against renters that are unrelated and share a household, and placing a burden on property owners to enforce.
  • Last year we defeated a tax on conventional mortgages that would have cost the average California homebuyer over $8,000 on the cost of their mortgage.
  • Thanks to the RAF we have been able to defeat service taxes,that would have taxed your commission.
  • RAF has helped us defend the mortgage interest deduction from being eliminated.
