We have similar issue here where even professional electrical engineers with their advanced qualifications and decades of  experience are banned from installing a power point or a light switch in their own home. From my experience some of the licensed electricians are incompetent and dangerous, and should not be in the business. Except for one electrician I know, I trust my skills in electrical wiring much more than most electricians.

Wrong side of the equator.  It's Australia.

You can have all the knowledge and qualifications under the sun, but if you don't have an Electricians Licence, you can't touch a power point, light switch or any other fixed wiring.  Even then, there are classes of licence, depending on where the required work is within the network (think Cat ratings on your meter).
