After the success of last year’s new notary education program, two courses will be offered in 2024 – one in Brisbane and one in Cairns.

This year, the Office and Practice of a Notary Microcredential is being delivered in person both in Brisbane and at Palm Cove by Bond University in conjunction with the Society of Notaries, Queensland.

The course is now a prerequisite for all new notaries.

The 2024 Society of Notaries of Queensland President Myles Murphy said the numbers were limited for each session and registrations had already been received. 

The early bird registration closes at the end of this month. The Brisbane course will be held from 2-3 August and the Palm Cove session 6-7 September 2024.

Myles said he attended last year’s course and “I cannot recommend the course enough. It allowed me to gain a perspective to our work as notaries that I did not have before”.


“Finally, not to be overlooked, it provided all my CPD points in one swoop,” he said. 

“It is truly worth it. So please enrol and do so before the early bird registration expires.” 

The microcredential was developed in partnership with Bond University’s Faculty of Law, and Professor Peter Zablud, author of the main text on notarial practice in Australia, Principles of Notarial Practice.

Practitioners will be assessed on the basis of their active participation in the workshop and completion of a paper following the workshop.

The Society is hoping to boost numbers in regional Queensland with the Cairns event. Last year, the course was delivered in Townsville.
