Ensuring the Integrity of the Electrical Industry

The Florida Association of Electrical Contractors is the voice of the electrical industry in Florida.
Made up of Electrical Contractors and Industry Allies, FAEC represents the needs and concerns
of the electrical contractor, not only as they relate to the trade, but as a businessperson.

 

FAEC ... an organization United and Dedicated to building the future of the Electrical Industry!

"The first requisite for success is to develop the ability to focus and apply your mental and physical energies to the problem at hand - without growing weary. Because such thinking is often difficult, there seems to be no limit to which some people will go to avoid the effort and labor that is associated with it."

~ Thomas A. Edison


FAEC Honors Joseph Schmitt with 2018 Edison Award

Joe started his electrical apprenticeship training in Orlando in 1973.  During his third year of apprenticeship, Joe passed his Masters license test and received his Florida Electrical Contractor’s license.


After receiving his Contractor’s license, Joe moved to Ohio and began working as a journeyman electrician at Spurlock Power Plant in Kentucky.  After a few years, Joe was offered a position with Lorde Electric and the building of Spurlock Station Power Plant, a 300 Megawatt coal fired power plant.  Joe finished the project in 1981 as Lorde Electric’s superintendent at Spurlock Power Plant.

 
In 1981, Joe started his 29 year employment with the Harris Corporation.  During this 29 year period, Joe was promoted to Lead Engineer and was responsible for high voltage crews, designed and managing high voltage 4160 projects. Joe started Certified Thermographic Services in 1987 and expanded to an electrical company in 2003.


A few of the local and national charity organizations and events Joe Schmitt and CTS supports are:

Habitat for Humanity, Wounded Warrior Projects, Palm Bay Police Department, St. Jude's, Junior Achievement Wounded WPalm Bay Police DepartmeJunior Achievement

A few of the many charity projects Joe Schmitt and CTS have been involved in are:

Joe taught at the Brevard Electrical Apprenticeship Training Program from 1982-2003.  He returned in 2012 and is currently teaching and promoting all apprenticeship training.


Over the years, Joe has always supported other electrical contractors.  From assisting them on high voltage projects to loaning them tools and equipment.


Joe’s belief is “We in the electrical trade, have a brotherhood that is a small part of the construction industry.  It is our responsibility to farther the trade professionally.  We need to work together, and demonstrate that we in the electrical industry can and will make a huge difference at the present and future time.”
