Secretary of State Offers Free Notary Public Seminars Across South Carolina


(Columbia, S.C.) Secretary of State Mark Hammond is offering six free regional notary public seminars this summer and fall for all South Carolina notaries and those interested in becoming a notary. 

The full text of the notary law can be found here.

Notaries public hold an important position of responsibility. Once commissioned as a notary public, it is the responsibility of the notary to maintain a level of training necessary to perform the duties of the position as required by law. These seminars will address state laws governing the duties and responsibilities of notaries. In addition, the seminars will provide information how notaries can avoid pitfalls related to the unauthorized practice of law.

NOTARIES ARE NOT REQUIRED TO ATTEND A SEMINAR. Attendees are welcome to register for and attend any notary seminar convenient to them regardless of their county of residence or the location of the seminar.  If you are unable to attend a seminar in person, please take advantage of our webinar.

Doors will open at 5:30 pm on the day of the seminar; seminar will begin promptly at 6:00 pm; seminar will conclude by 7:30 pm.
