What is the pre-license Closing Agent Course
“Principles of Closing“ is the pre-license closing procedures course approved by the Minnesota Department of Commerce for the Closing Agent License required by the state for those who notarize any real estate documents – deeds, mortgages, leases, etc. The course closely follows the curriculum required by the state under MN Statute. The course is available 24/7 via smart phone, tablet or computer, and you can log in and log out at will, bookmarking your place as you go.
Each section is timed and must be completed in order. A quiz for each section must be passed in order to move on to the next section. This assures that you understand the material. While each section has a minimum amount of time allotted, you may take as long as you wish to thoroughly understand the material, and you may review the course materials as often as you like, so long as you complete the entire course within 120 days.
At the end on the course, there is an online examination that requires a proctor, a non-relative, with no financial interest in your passing the exam, who signs a prescribed Proctor Form saying they saw you take the exam with no assistance from books, notes, your computer, or other sources, when taking the test. When you have passed the exam, you must submit the required proctor form and course evaluation before your course completion can be submitted to the state by your Course Provider.
Course Completion will be sent on your behalf to Commerce electronically. Please use your legal name, as it appears on your driver’s license.
