Free notary training at Forsyth County Courthouse

CUMMING — Georgia residents who are a notary or who are interested in becoming one can attend one of two free training sessions being held at the Forsyth County Courthouse.

Forsyth County Superior Court Clerk Greg Allen and the Georgia Superior Court Clerks’ Cooperative Authority are putting on the sessions Dec. 2.

They are open to the public and “highly recommended to anyone who is a notary public in the state of Georgia or interested in becoming a notary.”

In a statement, Allen said it is “important to remember that a notary public should perform their duties to the utmost extent of the law. Failure to do so could result in costly lawsuits and penalties as a notary can be liable for his or her actions.”

Reservations are required to attend either of the sessions. The first is set for 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. The second is 2 to 3:30 p.m.

Both sessions will be held on first floor in the jury assembly room. The courthouse is at 101 E. Courthouse Square in downtown Cumming.
