I’m currently certified in another State. Am I permitted to work legally in Hawaiʻi?

No. Each state that has a certification procedure has different requirements and laws. While national certification is universal in the United States, several states such as Hawaiʻi (and some cities) require separate certification and payment in their jurisdiction. If you want to work on the Islands, you must be certified here. Military operators in Hawaiʻi are usually subject to federal requirements only.
