If I have a valid CPA license from another state must I first get certified in Illinois in order to obtain an Illinois CPA license?

If your current CPA license is issued from a state considered substantially equivalent to Illinois you DO NOT need to obtain Illinois certification prior to getting your Illinois CPA license. You can apply directly to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to receive your Illinois CPA license.
