Australian electrician looking into working in Norway for a while


Hello dear forum.
Australian sparky here.
I'm considering moving to Norway. For a year or two by my current plans. But maybe permanent.
What are the requirements in norway to be able to practice my craft there? Do I need to convert my aussie licence to a norwegian one?

I am a fully licenced electrician in New South Wales and Victoria, Australia. With 15 years experience.
Any courses you could recommend to get familiar with norwegian codes and regulations?
