Protect yourself, your library, and the patron with a half-day workshop designed exclusively for library staff who already have their notary commission as well as those who are interested in obtaining a commission.

  • How do I perform a copy certification request?

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a better understanding of the essential elements for Ohio notarization
  • Learn how to stay away from trouble, and when you need to say “No”
  • Feel more comfortable with complex and unusual signing situations (such as vehicle titles, powers of attorney, advanced directives, etc.)
  • View examples of improper documents and learn what to watch for

About the presenter:
