When is an electrical engineer not an engineer? When Arizona's state regulators decide to play word games

In the UK, people that are not even qualified as fitters or installers, maybe have a 2 week course, are called Engineers by Sky, Virgin, BT etc.

Engineers are not usally sent on a house call to install/fault find a TVRO sat dish and box, a cable modem, connect a washing machine or a VDSL/Fibre modem. They MIGHT be sent when the install dept has failed dozens of times and it sounds really odd/interesting to the Engineering Manager or CEO or CTO.
