SLCC is offering a day course at SLCC’s T. H. Harris Campus in Opelousas to prepare students for the State’s Notary exam.

The class will be held June through October on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. so those working in banking and law can attend class during the business day.

SLCC says the  course will prepare students for the exams administered by the State in October and December. The Notary Exam Prep course will cover the system of law and courts in Louisiana, as well as drafting donations, acts of sale, contracts, conveyances of real property, testaments, small successions, and business entities.

The course is $499. Students must purchase the 2019 study guide, “Fundamentals of Notarial Law and Practice,” from the Secretary of State’s office. Students can register for classes online at or by calling 337-521-9028.

In addition to the day course in Opelousas, SLCC will offer the Notary Exam Prep course on Tuesday evenings in Lafayette and Wednesday evenings in Crowley.

The Louisiana Notary Association states on their website that commissioned Louisiana Notary Publics can prepare acts of sale, wills, trusts, real estate transfers, matrimonial agreements, acts of adoptions, and other instruments in writing.
