It's extremely difficult to find someone to shadow as we are dealing with people's Non-Public Personal Information (NPPI) and basically we hesitate on training our competition.
Does Oregon Secretary of State publish a notary handbook? If so, study it and know your notary laws and inside/out. If you're planning on handling real estate transactions, learn your state notary laws by heart then get comfortable with real estate documents then you feel comfortable when accommodating those transactions.
May I ask what prompted you to become a notary?
