If you want to check this site out, its one like ECN but caters to communication installs.

The cabling section deals with installing, bidding and connecting.

Yes people deinitely have issues with lecensing, the technology has been around for so long and never any regulation existed as to who can perform work.
It is hard to adjust to change.

Yeah, I'm a member over there also and you probably are talking about a thread I participated in. They complain about fly-by-nighters who underbid them and I try to convince them that licensing is a good thing and will help cut down on that.

I also don't think they realize that if licensing is required and they operate without one they have no legal recourse to collect their money if the customer decides not to pay.

Oh well, I'll keep trying.
