If you are going to go to work for a company as a service tech you will need an EPA certification.

If you are going to work for yourself you will need a county or state license and insurance.

You will find all the info you need here :- http://www.myflorida.com/dbpr/

Heat pumps are very common in florida, in some communities you do see some gas furnaces, oil is rarely seen in residential applications more in commercial or industrial.

The usual Florida heat scheme is electric resistance strip; when used with a "heat pump" then it is called "emergency heat."

The further into the peninsula you travel, the higher likelihood of this scenario. Natural gas heat below Interstate 4 is very rare.
