It depends on if you are going for General Notary work or Signing Agent. If it is GNW, you should become fluent in your state's SOS rules. If you are interested in becoming a Signing Agent, you should do Notary2Pro vs all the others for training. Get their certification and then go to NNA and take their test and Back Ground Check for NNA certification. N2P has advanced classes and additional vendor partners for training with additional income opportunities. They are there for you for mentoring and when you have a question at the table, but the signing company isn't answering the phone. They also have "A" list of companies to sign up with available for the graduates (N2PElites). Check out their website and if you have any questions give them a call.
