What would be the best European countries to take an American Funeral Directing license to and work and live with? It is to my understanding that any of these countries may have you complete courses that will prepare you for their workforce so that you understand their laws and practices. I was thinking along the lines of Sweden, Germany and possibly Canada. Any ideas?

What would be the best European countries to take an American license (of any sort) to and work and live with?
Language issues aside... they'll all be about equally problematic.
Somewhere between major PITA and outright impractical.

What would someone from Sweden, Germany or Canada have to go through to practice in the US?
Class time, certified OTJ time, testing... wouldn't it be like starting over from scratch?

I suspect that you will have to obtain a license for the country you choose. That would probably not be too hard. Learn the language well enough to pass the written exam, and learn the local laws about body disposal. They might or might not accept your education and college degrees transferred over.

I suggest that you find out which agency in each of your target countries does the licensing for funeral homes and contact them directly for their requirements.
