The Pennsylvania Association of Notaries will hold several educational seminars this month for Altoona area notaries and motor vehicle agents.
The seminars will be held at the Hampton Inn, 180 Charlotte Drive.
PAN’s First Time Notary Seminar will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Jan. 14. It is state-approved and fulfills the three-hour mandatory education provision for new notaries.
The Everyday Notary Challenges Seminar will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. the same day, and is offered in conjunction with the First Time Notary Seminar. This seminar focuses on problem documents and serves as an exam prep for the notary examination required as of Oct. 26, 2017.

The cost for each notary seminar is $69.
