A Public Notary is someone who has been appointed and approved by their state government to witness signing of documents and taking of oaths to reduce any chances of fraud.
It is against Federal Law to require a person to be a US Citizen to perform these duties.
There is no required training courses in many states such as Maine. Maine citizens may go to the states website and download the training guide, application and exam, pay the fee and wait for approval!
States like California who do have training requirements will direct you to where you can get your training and steps to becoming qualified and then appointed.
