Professional and Vocational Licensing (PVL) continues to forge ahead with its initiatives to improve accessibility to licensing services and information, and to deregulate and streamline the licensing process without compromising consumer protection. PVL is committed to working with licensees and the public to achieve the optimum balance between thoughtful and fair regulation, and consumer protection. In these difficult economic times, PVL is mindful of the strain on Hawaii’s businesses and seeks to integrate licensing measures and procedures that will facilitate business. Ultimately, PVL’s goal is to achieve and facilitate a fair marketplace for the State of Hawaii.
Beginning with the December 31, 2017 renewal, licensed naturopathic physicians (“N.D.”) must meet continuing education requirements and submit CE documentation in order to renew their licenses.
