Notary Public 

You must register in person for the Notary class

 Class Schedule

CVCC offers the seven hour Notary Public class at least twice each month; one evening offering and one Saturday offering. This is a required class if you want to obtain a NC Commission as a Notary Public.

Each class is taught by a certified instructor and provides a thorough introduction to the statutes which regulate the acts of North Carolina notaries. The purpose of the education requirement is to enable the applicant to become a responsible, qualified candidate for Notary Public commission.

You are required to purchase the current edition of the Notary Public Guidebook, which is included in the cost of your class and will be given to you when you register in person at the East Campus or Alexander Center.

 It is recommended that you register at least one week prior to the class you want to attend.  This will allow time for you to read the guidebook which must be read prior to class.  There are no waivers and no refunds for this class.  The cost of the class including the guidebook is $75.
