Check the expiration date on your Hoisting Machine Operator Certificate card. Don’t wait until the last minute to renew your card. We recommend you begin to get your paperwork together at least 30 days before your card expires.
Make sure all your required certificates are current and still effective. You may need to get another physical examination–NCCCO physicals are good for three years and Department of Transportation physicals are good for two years. Make sure your NCCCO Certificate is also current.
You may renew your HMOAB certificate up to the expiration date of your NCCCO Certification but no longer than five years. You also have the choice to renew for one year, two years, three years, four years, or five years, but no longer than the expiration of your NCCCO Certification. For example, if your NCCCO Certification expires in two years, then your Hawaii Certification can only be renewed for up to two years. If your NCCCO Certification expires in four years, then your Hawaii Certification can only be renewed for up to four years.
In addition, Hawaii certification fees are not prorated. For example, suppose you paid $300 for a three-year Hawaii Certification but your NCCCO Certification expires in 2 ½ years. Your Hawaii certification will also expire in 2 ½ years. This means you would only get 2 ½ years for your $300 fee.
The fee is $100 for each year. Do not add the $50 additional fee—this is only for new applicants. However, if 90 days has passed since your current certification expired, you will be considered a new applicant.
