Categories of Membership

There are two membership categories:

    • ordinary members (“Members“); and
    • fellows (“Fellows“)

Please note, for the purpose of qualifying for admission to membership as a Fellow:

    • “Recognised Academic Qualification” means the Graduate Diploma in Notarial Practice awarded by Victoria University, Melbourne (“Grad.Dip.NP”) or a qualification awarded by a tertiary institution in Australia or elsewhere which, in the Board’s reasonable opinion, is at least equivalent to the Grad.Dip.NP.

Only notaries who hold a Recognised Academic Qualification or who have held office as a notary in Australia or New Zealand for at least five years may become Fellows of the College.

(An ordinary Member automatically becomes a Fellow of the College after having held office as a notary for five years.) Please note, there is only 1 form for application as Member or Fellow of the College. Your status is determined when you apply.
