Qualifications gained abroad

If you wish to work with electricity in Sweden, you are not required to have official Swedish authorisation. You must, however, be covered by an electrical installation company’s self-audit scheme.

That means it is up to the company to decide what qualifications you need and what kinds of work you are allowed to do on behalf of the company. Of course, if you would like to become an authorised electrician, you can apply for authorisation from the National Electrical Safety Board. Make sure you find out exactly which requirements are relevant to your application.

There is also an application fee to pay when applying for authorisation.
