A forum we all know, which I hadn’t used much but now I am in a new rural area., So I worked First Class loans, think I worked with them several years ago as well. I click on the notification because this loan is in a small town I am going to that day, another notification appears with a higher fee, which means they are passing me over. Now with 16+ years experience, Fidelity certified and work directly with Title companies who have their own apps, with a strong accurate history of. So, I decide to call - I get someone who kindly explains that their client wants someone with over 100 loan signs on snapdocs. Ha Ha, really my qualifications don’t matter and I am passed by because I don’t use snapdocs. My comment is snapdocs is not very highly regarded and it would seem your client wants to ensure a qualified notary which I am. I found the reasoning faulty, moivng on of course!
Their reason is absurd! It’s their loss! I snapped out of snapdocs immediately. I signed up with them only for a month I think. I am very well experienced and realized that was a major distraction place so I deactivated my account immediately. I refused to take low orders and so I never actually completed anything through them thus I was being looked at as a brand new notary. . What ever! . No thank you.
Thank you, grateful hearing from you. I was thinking about closing my account out when I was in Santa Rosa, waited as I moved and wasn’t sure what lie ahead. But the irritation of all the notifications I got, and many of them were the same loan, and now this. I’m ready to not be bothered again. Loved hearing from you.
Just divorce them and be done! Move on with your life:)
Is snapdocs the largest platform in US?
My question is, why don’t they have classes?? So we can have the right kind training. I have looked for Workshops. Never get a response.
Snapdocs is just a network. Vendors are suppose to view a notaries bio. What really could you learn in a workshop? If you have the time view the list of vendors and check their credentials. Sounds like a nice service connection but you after you work with a variety of vendors you learn it’s just not worth it! For many reasons. I could give you many examples but, if you are not you are getting work. Good Luck!
[lelandgiz] if you are looking for NSA training please go no Notary2Pro.com. They are the most respected trainers in the industry.
My personal experience:
When I initially started performing this work, I successfully completed MULTIPLE (including NNA) training/certification programs including Notary2Pro. I’ve successfully completed ALL of the various training/certification programs offered by Notary2Pro.
I’ve professionally compared the training/certification program with Notary2Pro with the others I had (previously) successfully completed. The ONLY training/certification program I recommend is Notary2Pro.
Notary2Pro training & certifications are comprehensive and accurate. They also provide training about creating your business.
NOTE: The training provided by the NNA is insufficient, has many errors for multiple states, and doesn’t fully prepare the CNSA for the rigors of the work in this business sector.
Also, Notary2Pro has ongoing education as well as an excellent Mentoring program. Best of all, the services provided are reasonably priced (in my opinion).
A list of companies that hire Notary2Pro graduates (with minimal or no experience) is provided to successful course graduates. => This opportunity is pure GOLD! Study up, refresh your notes, & let Carol know when your initial few signings are scheduled. Carol Ray is a wonderful mentor & can be on standby in case you encounter difficulties or have questions during your first few signings. She’s the Best! Her support will help you Build your Confidence in providing CNSA services.
In addition, Notary2Pro works diligently to keep this list up-to-date regarding vetting and viability. As we all know, some reliable clients and encounter financial difficulties and that, in turn, can negatively impact CNSAs directly.
Of course, your best bet would be to visit their website at https://www.notary2pro.com/ , research, and make the choices appropriate for your situation. The training programs by Carol Ray are comprehensive & thorough.
NOTE: I receive no compensation or remuneration of any type or kind as a result of my review above.
I beg to differ, if you want NSA training go to the National Notary Association
@cnelson Have you successfully completed both the Notary2Pro & the NNA training & certification programs?
Pardon me, seems your comment is very extensive. The NNA is an industry standard, don’t understand why their information wouldn’t be correct but they also have a hotline nationally for notary assistance so again wouldn’t see why that platform wouldn’t be correct.
What you don’t understand is it may be the “industry standard” but it’s because of their marketing only…they’ve convinced them they are. Their training is lacking in many places and many “graduates” end up going on to train more elsewhere for better understanding. Further, their primer is fraught with errors, and their hotline is not reliable.
If you like them that’s your choice…just keep an open mind and eyes wide open.
@LindaH-FL Absolutely accurate on all counts. Couldn’t have surmised it better myself!
Thank you for the update, seems I could use some time to check this out! Notary2Pro.com
I totally agree with you Linda. It’s a great place to get your annual re-certification and background check if you already know what you’re doing as an NSA but in my opinion if you’re brand new(1st timer as a notary/signing agent), it will be a bit scary and you’re be at a loss when you actually get a loan closing.
Adding to the experienced notaries chorus about NNA… Amen
Precisely my point of getting training elsewhere - and at least other programs offer post graduate mentorship AND a list of companies who are willing to use their graduates to get them experience.
When I first moved to Florida I also used NNA to get started - mostly because of the convenience - I also initially took their certification - and that was after a 25 year career as a closing paralegal. I could see where it was lacking and thankfully had my experience to fall back on…(I had many wonderful teachers during those 25 years) - .
cnelson said “I beg to differ, if you want NSA training go to the National Notary Association” - and to that I beg to differ - hence my post.
It’s all a bunch of BS, find people to work with who pay well, do a good job, and your ok, snap doc is a POS they allow title companies to sub out deals at a cheap rate, who’s going to drive anywhere print docs and do this for $40? most signings are a joke so here’s my advice get busy find real people and get paid or else be a mule and work for free
I do very well using SnapDocs. It all depends on your location and situation. The more error-free signings you do, the more thumbs up you get which leads to higher paying signings. I can definitely attest to that. SnapDocs is very good for me.
