How do I begin the certification process?

You can begin the online application process by clicking here. Login with your username and password. If you do not have an ehawaii account, you can Sign Up as a new user.

You can also mail an application with check or money order payable to “Department of Labor” to HMOAB Dept of Labor, 830 Punchbowl St. Room 114, Honolulu, HI  96813. You should include copies of all necessary documents, sign the application, and include a good quality picture of yourself or email a digital or cellphone photo to [email protected]. Application forms are available online, or by writing [email protected] or by calling (808) 586-8146.  The three-page form is quick and easy to fill out, but requires copies of documents as outlined in section “B,” along with payment. The certification also requires a current digital photograph of the applicant’s head and shoulders (cellphone photo is okay) uploaded online or sent to the above e-mail address.

Once approved, your certification is usually processed and mailed within one business day or the next business day after a holiday.
