The lady who studied 30 hours for her elite test

Filed under: Certification & Communication Skills — admin @ 10:46 am

I am very honored and pleased to announce that there was a very zealous lady in California who claimed that she loved my materials on Notary Public 101. She studied an hour or two per night for close to a month for my elite test. This lady aced my test and I was so surprised and pleased. I am so tired of people with bad attitudes, it is refreshing to see people who have an excellent attitude. I wish more people could have better attitudes towards learning.

Our new elite test is by phone and it is hard as hell. There are so many different sections of the test ranging from notary, documents, situations and advanced materials too. There is a lot to learn, and some of it is hard. Typically and ironically, Notaries have the hardest time passing questions about Notary acts, because so few of them know the rules for any Notary act.

Being elite certified raises your click average by 60% on your listing based on numbers I crunched in 2018. This is a huge boost in clicks and a huge boost in jobs not to mention that people get paid more who are elite certified. If you want to get ahead, spending a lot of time studying will pay off in the long run, and even in the short run. I wish I had more ladies like this one who studied so hard. It makes me feel good when people respect me, my materials and high standards. It makes our industry great (but not great again).

  1. Scoring high on a test is never an indication of a good signer. You must have an adaptable strategy each time you walk into a signing. It’s also called flexibility. You must size up your client quickly without prejudice. Then proceed. It is a great thing she did and it shows commitment. The problem is in our industry there are very few knowledgeable and experienced people. There are a lot by the book people whom have no sense of what they are doing or how to do it. It demeans our industry.

  2. I loved the elite course, it was educational and funny at the same time.

  3. I am studying for your test. I have noticed that several vendors are asking if the NSA has passed YOUR test, btw. I do, however, agree with Craig. I think more knowledge, used judiciously at a signing, gives confidence to the signers that their monetary investment in their property is being handled well.
