Distance Learning

Our 4 distance learning programs are accredited  by the Faculty Office for continuing professional education points (CPE). To obtain the points, you need to provide evidence that you have studied the course materials.  This is usually done by the provider  – us at Law Consultancy Services – setting a questionnaire.

Course materials can be printed out and sent to you in the post however, we now find that most notaries prefer to instantly download the notes online.  This is quick and straight forward to do – simply select the Topic on the right-hand side of this page and ADD TO CART.  If you prefer to receive printed notes – these can be sent to you by Royal Mail – click here to order.

DON’T LIKE QUESTIONNAIRES? – no problem.

If you prefer to work at your own pace in your own time, but don’t like having to submit written answers, our ‘hybrid’ option is for you.  We still send you the detailed study notes, but instead of including a questionnaire, we  arrange for you to attend a short Zoom meeting. The benefit of this approach is that you can discuss any elements of the course materials that you may want to know more about. The meeting would take approximately 15 minutes.

Please note: Non-Accredited Self Study Programs do not require a quesionnaire!

Notaries are reminded that the notarial professional remains attractive to criminals: we discuss why this is.   And it’s not just to facilitate money laundering.

We consider what is money.  We review a comprehensive list of  ‘red flags’ specific to notarial work and to notarial clients. We provide some practical solutions as to how to spot attempts to draw the notary into facilitating the layering, placement, and the Integration  or extraction stages of money laundering. .

We review and report on updates to  existing rules and guidance aimed at the notarial profession.  We touch on the potential for fraud with remote notarisation.

This program provides the compulsory one-hour accredited  CPE hour you need to renew your practising certificate.
