CPE Courses

Digestible CPE courses for your practice

Notaries are required to undertake six hours of study each year with 1 CPE point awarded for each hour of study.  Three of the six hours must be ‘accredited’ the professional regulator – The Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Our distance learning and hybrid remote programmes can be ordered and paid for online and instantly downloaded at any time, day or night.

Our small-group seminars facilitate group conversation – the notary can learn and benefit from the experiences of other notaries.

Expertise

Delivering CPE content

We have been delivering accredited programmes since compulsory CPE was first introduced. Many notaries have commented that our seminars are the best they have ever attended!

Law Consultancy Services offers 3 main course types:

  • Seminar: in-person, face-to-face events and some specials – such as the ‘Legalisation Special’ – where we take a private tour of the FCDO flagship building.
  • Zoom Remote Learning: all the benefits of face-to-face without the travel.
  • Distance Learning: detailed learning notes are provided.

NEW FOR 2023/24:

  • Remote Hybrid Learning: Detailed learning notes are provided ahead of a shorter Zoom discussion meeting instead of a questionnaire to be completed.

There are under 800 notaries public operating in England and Wales, most are independent, working on their own, often without business support. Having someone knowledgeable to turn to from time-to-time can be very reassuring.  Perhaps a coach.

A coach is someone who provides guidance on day-to-day difficulties.  Coaching is often short-term, delivered within 10 – or 15-minute conversations.  When difficulties arise and answers are sought, the coach will ask (the right) questions, giving the coachee time to reflect.

Ambitious notaries can benefit from the services of a management consultant.  Management consultants focus on people (clients and influencers) and the less quantifiable parts of the business (for example, vision, strategic objectives, forward planning, expansion, and growth).

We, at LCS, have just the expertise and experience you need.

Our services start with a no-cost exploratory telephone or Zoom conversation.  This is followed with a chargeable, no-obligation-to-proceed,  initial face-to-face meeting to establish how we can help and what outcomes are desired.
