Or hobbyist.  It's pretty trivial, after all.  If you live in a state where that's not allowed, that would be an issue.  But in NH, for example, homeowners can do their own electrical work.  I wouldn't do work on the meter box or other always-live parts, but anything that can be powered down isn't an issue.  For one thing, I know from experience that the fact someone has a license doesn't necessarily make him qualified to do electrical work.
