Electrical contractors in FL are required to do continuing eduction.  We are certified to perform this in FL using NFPA 70E but most don’t do that level of training opting for NEC (National Electrical Code) training which is mandatory.  Electrical safety and wiring safety are BOTH important. ” Test before touch” is a live saving event.  This is so simple and takes so little time.  Most of the fatalities I have investigated occurred on circuits which were supposed to be “de-energized”.
