It is essential that notaries understand their duties and responsibilities. Individuals assume personal liability when serving as a notary, but their employer can also be held liable. In the financial services industry, notaries are required for many transactions. However, there are times when notaries feel uncomfortable with their role and/or the transaction. This program will teach notaries how to understand and correctly execute their duties and responsibilities, with a focus on important financial industry issues and best practices.
