Anyone can design main powered devices, however:

You should exercise due diligence in your designs.
Read and know safety standards, like UL-60950.
Perform risk analysis and an FMEA on your device and document all of this.
Consider public liability insurance, although it has become a ripoff in Australia. Nothing beats due diligence.

The most important benefit of being an EE is helps you get a job and teaches you about control theory (the "key" to good design), but you won't become a chick magnet with an EE degree.

This is total nonsense. I think you should do your reasearch before you make a comment like that and make a fool of yourself on the public forum. Everybody here knows and it totally goes without saying that all the hottest chicks go for electrical engineers ;)

sorry bad joke. As for the Ctick issue, Ive seen products on the market simillar to the type of work I do - niche and small market - with Cticks on them. This confuses me because the cost I presumed would ouweigh any profits made. Are people faking these Cticks?

I would imagine commercialising a product without compliance may bare a heafty penalty, but faking a Ctick would be outright criminal. Yet unless I have misunderstood the costs involved I cannot see how it would be economical for said products.

OK, on your comment on engineers attracting hot chicks... :bullshit:, but it depends on what a hot chick is. How often do you hear in the media the likes of, "Kylie Minogue snapped by the paparazzi, leaving her local electronics store arm in arm with her new FPGA designer beau." or "Kim Kardashian with a new life as a PCB layout designer, dumps her boyfriend for an ace debug technician".   

The government has lost control on C-Tick enforcement and the RCM mark. I can buy stuff in the local cheap imports shop that does not have C-tick compliance. I can import crap on eBay that does not have compliance.

Lots of beautiful engineering women, havent you ever seen star trek ?

true. But I still want to be above board so long as its possible.

OK, princess Leia from Star Wars. She fell in love with me and my 10X oscilloscope probe. And I fell in love with her 8-ohm impedance headphone hairstyle. And then I woke up.
