NSU offers notary exam prep: The notary public exam prep course offered at Northwestern State University is extended and revamped to help prepare for the new statewide Notary Exam. This course is offered via video conferencing. Participants will be given a specific review of the subjects tested on the new statewide exam. The formating changed beginning with June’s test. NSU will offer two separate prep courses as follows:
Notary Public Exam Prep-Robin Jones will offer 52 hours of instruction for students who have never taken the Exam.
The course will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays, Sept. 1 – Nov. 19, skipping Oct. 15 and 29. The time for the course is 6:30–8:30 p.m.
The cost is $430. If registered by Aug. 26 the cost is $410.
Notary Public Exam Prep-Jones will offer 4 hours of instruction for those who need a quick refresher or want to retake the Notary Exam. This extensive review cannot take the place of the thorough Exam Prep class. The review will be Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015 from 8 a.m. – noon. The cost is $65 or $45 if registered by Nov. 15.
