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

So stupid

An "engineer" is someone who engages in engineering, regardless of their certifications. All by itself, that should not be a restricted term. Legitimate restricted terms should be something like "certified engineer" or "registered engineer", as those imply credentials. "Engineer" all by itself does not imply credentials, it implies actions.
