If you are a notary for your employer, your employer could also be held liable for your mistakes. All too often people take the office of Notary Public lightly, which is a huge mistake. Even though your state does not require education, it could keep you out of trouble. The Hawaii Online Notary Course is the fastest and easiest way for you to learn what to do and what not to do and how to protect yourself as a notary. Whether you are a new or current notary public in Hawaii, you should spend some time learning the laws. The cost of this course is much less expensive than just 1 hour consulting an attorney.

  10. Every person appointed and commissioned a notary must forthwith file a literal or photo static copy of his commission, an impression of his seal, and a specimen of his official signature with the clerk of the circuit court of the circuit in which the notary resides. Each person may also, at his option, file the above-named documents with the clerk of any other circuit court. Thereafter, any clerk, when requested, shall certify to the official character and acts of any such notary whose commission, impression of seal and specimen of official signature is so filed in his office (a process called authentication).
