GFCI exceptions?

Because this outlet is on the side of the island is it exempt from being a GFCI? As you can see it is within 6’.

No.

Above Kitchen countertops are required to be GFCI protected.

If it serves the countertop then GFCI protection is required even if it’s physically below the countertop.

All kitchen, bathroom, dining, garage, exterior, utility outlets are required to be gfci protected.

What are utility outlets?

Laundry area.
Also unfinished basements, I believe

Laundry room

You are correct sir.

Does the training still call for within 6’ of the kitchen sink or the correct determinant of does it serve the countertop? It has not been within 6’ in a kitchen for a long time. The 6 foot does apply for other sink types.
