Default Being An Electrician in Kissimmee FL

I have been trying to make inquiries on how to get licensed as an electrician and whether any of my qualifications are transferable from the UK. ?

There's no individual electrical license in Florida. It's only required for the business owner/contractor. You can move there tomorrow and start working, though coming from the UK there is a steep learning curve.

He would need to cross through the southern border first for it to be legit. I would suggest getting a dark tan first though.
