A preparation course for the state's notary public exam will begin Jan. 22 at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
The basic notary test preparation course will meet from 6-8:50 p.m. on Tuesday evenings through the first week of May.
The course is being offered through UL Lafayette's department of marketing and hospitality.
Participants don't have to be pursuing a degree to sign up for the class.
Passage of a state-administered notary exam is required of any qualified candidate not licensed to practice law in Louisiana, according to information posted on the Louisiana Secretary of State's website www.sos.la.gov.
The exam takes place on the first Saturday in June and again in December. Candidates must register with the Secretary of State's office 45 days before the test. The next testing date is June 1.
Fred Davis, an attorney and visiting instructor of legal studies, will teach the course. Davis, a 1983 graduate of the Loyola University School of Law in New Orleans, publishes the "Pass My Notary" workbook series.
Practice test scenarios are also part of the course.
