Notaries Public

Upcoming Notary Office Events:

The State of Hawaii, Department of the Attorney General’s Notary Office Training Sessions will be held each month throughout the year 2019.  You will only be allowed to attend each session once, as to give others a chance to attend the sessions as well.

There will be two sessions for Oahu as listed below:

Session 1 – Notary Basics, Fundamentals, & State Laws – (for Prospective Notaries and New Notaries) (Beginners) – held in January, March, May, July, September, and November

Session 2 – Intermediate/Advanced Principles of Law, Procedures, & Ethics (for Commissioned Notaries) – held in February, April, June, August, October, and December

There will also be a link for sign-ups for the outer islands as well (Kauai, Maui, Hilo, & Kona). Our next training will be held on Maui on February 27, 2019. Both Sessions listed above will be combined for the outer island training sessions.
