§11-218-14 Recognition of credentials issued by other entities. The board is encouraged to recognize and honor providers with current and valid credentials issued by entities other than the State. The board shall examine the parity of credentials issued by other entities to determine if and at what level a provider with another credential may qualify for a Hawaii State Sign Language Interpreter Credential. These credentials shall be considered current and valid if they were awarded not more than two years prior to the date of hire, unless otherwise indicated by the documentation of such credentials. A provider with a credential issued by another entity that is recognized by the board may be issued a Hawaii State Sign Language Interpreter Credential for one credential cycle upon application as set forth in section 11-218-12. The provider must renew a credential through completion of the continuing education program as set forth in section 11-218-12.5.
