I know there is a shortage of Electrical Inspectors up here, but that may not help you down in the Sunshine State.
Years back I made the decision to invest the time and $$ to take inspectors courses (mandatory here) and take the required tests. I put the licenses in my wallet, did the CEUs, paid the renewal fees, and waited. I took a P/T insp position, which led to FT when I decided to hang up the tools and close the business.
You pretty much have to get an inspector's license. Go to the DBPR site for what they want to see these days (I got mine 25 years ago). If you are not very familiar with finding your way around the NEC, the test may be tough but if you get comfortable in there it is a breeze. That will go a long way toward getting hired although there are ways to get a provisional license if you are working for a municipality. I suspect the best opportunities these days may be with new towns starting their own building departments but you can call around and see how the county and the big cities are fixed. Building is really picking up down in my neck of the woods (Lee County) and I know they have an inspector retiring as we speak.
