Introducing Notarize Academy: The #1 Training Program for Online Closings

Since completing the first online closing in 2017, more than 10,000 real estate professionals have joined the Notarize platform to embrace technology that makes the home-buying experience easier, faster, and more accessible to all.

With the rapid adoption of eClosings and a growing appetite for better education and training, we saw an opportunity to create the industry’s-leading educational resource hub to bring home buying into the digital age. And, our customers have asked for more training about remote online notarization. That’s why today, we’re excited to launch Notarize Academy!

What is Notarize Academy?

Notarize Academy is a suite of digital, on-demand courses that helps any real estate professional understand how they can use technology to deliver a better home buying experience to their clients. The best part is, the courses are 100% free.

Today, we’re announcing our first Notarize Academy course for title agents! We’ll cover everything from remote online notarization to how to complete your first online closing with Notarize.

This free course for title agents includes five training video modules that can be completed in about 40 minutes. Each video includes downloadable scripts, guides and links for optional further reading. The course is designed for title agents, escrow officers and closing agents who are new to online closings.

Here’s what you can expect to learn in Academy courses:

  • How to complete online closings
  • Everything you need to know about remote online notarization
  • How technology can be used to curb real estate fraud
  • How to talk about online closings with your signers

Why did we create Notarize Academy?

Technology has caused tremendous change within the real estate industry over the past decade. And in the last few years especially, this growth has only been more aggressive.

Almost all home searches now begin online. More than half of mortgage applications are submitted the same way. And, more than $2 billion of real estate has been bought and sold entirely online. Technology, including remote online notarization, has helped democratize the home buying process, empowering anyone to buy and sell homes from wherever there is an Internet connection. As a result, lenders and title agents accelerated their adoption of eClosings to keep up with consumer demand.

We created Notarize Academy with the understanding that this change isn’t easy. And, we believe that technology needs to strike a balance of being helpful while also empowering you to do your best work.

As part of moving your workflow from physical to digital, we also know that you’ll have many questions: about legality; about security; about getting started. Notarize Academy has the answers.

Who is Notarize Academy For?

This first course is designed for title agents and escrow officers, but we’ll be introducing more title agents courses in the coming months, as well as classes for lenders, realtors, and other industry partners. Our goal is to provide the industry with training that is convenient and on-demand, though we’ll soon expand to in-person training sessions for the industry at large!

You have notarization questions, we have notarization answers. While we at Notarize pride ourselves on providing helpful resources (like this blog!) to demystify notarization, we’re not lawyers and don’t give legal advice. Pro tip: always check with your own attorneys, advisors, or document recipients if you have further questions about notarization or digitally notarized docs.
