Maui County wants to hold Molokai event to obtain, renew TWIC credentials

News

People who pick up shipments at state harbors, such as Kaunakakai Harbor, need to present a TWIC card, and the County of Maui Office of Economic Development is stepping up to offer an event to help people obtain or renew this credential.

 

TWIC stands for Transportation Worker Identification Credential.

 

Molokai residents can only obtain or renew their expired TWIC card by traveling to Maui or Oahu to one of the Universal Enrollment Centers.

 

The Office of Economic Development at the Kuhao Business Center is interested in scheduling a TWIC mobile site event on Molokai. Since the cards need to be renewed every five years, the last TWIC mobile site event was held on the island in 2014.

 

The event also can include the Transportation Security Administration’s other programs: TSA Pre ü and HAZMAT endorsement. There are minimum enrollment requirements before TSA’s contractor, Idemia, would schedule this mobile unit. So, the Economic Development Office is taking a survey to determine how many Molokai residents would commit to enrolling in one of the three programs. The mobile site event needs at least 100 participants, and an additional 50 enrollments are required to extend the event to include TSA Pre ü and HAZMAT endorsement.

 

Contact the Kuhao Business Center at (808) 553-8100 by March 31 or send email to Molokai business advocate Cynthia McCutcheon at cynthia.mccutcheon@co.maui.hi.us. Leave a phone message or send email with your name, phone number and email address. Survey participants need to identify which program documentation they need: TWIC, TSA Pre ü or HAZMAT.

 

If the survey determines there’s enough interest, further information would be provided to make an appointment for the event. It could be scheduled as early as mid-June.
