Effective with the June 30, 2009 renewal, all licensed plumbers need to complete a continued competency requirement by verifying proof of attendance at an educational course on the current updates to the (2018 Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) from Maui College, Hawai`i, Honolulu or Kaua`i Community Colleges and pay the applicable fees for license renewal.
The deadline to renew your license is June 30, 2021. Failure to renew your license by paying the applicable fee and meeting the continued competency requirement (attending the continued competency course) shall constitute a forfeiture of the license effective July 1, 2021. A forfeited license does not allow you to perform plumbing work. You have one year from June 30, 2021 to restore your license. If you fail to restore your license by June 30, 2022, you will need to reapply as a new applicant.
For information on the renewal process, call the Licensing Branch of the Department of Commerce & Consumer Affairs at 586-3000 or visit www.hawaii.gov/pvl and select “Electrician and Plumber” for information on meeting continued competency requirements.
