The job of an electrician is one of the most important jobs in a state that relies heavily on the power of natural gas and oil.
It’s also one that can be hard to fill.
The average salary for a Florida electrician with the state’s lowest-paying job is $34,838, according to a study by the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
And the average pay for a state electrician who holds a bachelor’s degree is $52,500.
The median salary for electrician-certified workers nationwide is $60,000, according a recent survey by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
It was $44,000 in Florida in 2014, according the data.
For electricians, there are multiple options for salary and benefits, and the state is looking at ways to encourage more apprenticeship programs.
A new state law allows electricians to earn a certificate of qualification and a certification in the field of electrical and electronic engineering.
The certificates are awarded for high-level work and demonstrate the worker has a background in the profession.
In recent years, the Florida Legislature passed a law allowing electricians and other skilled workers to take on more training courses.
In 2018, the Legislature added an additional certificate of skill in electrical and electronics.
In 2020, the legislature increased the minimum certificate of certification to associate electrician, a position that is typically filled by people with more advanced training, like an electrical engineer.
