In the Norwegian Armed Forces, promotion to the rank of Korporal is an acknowledgement for good service by conscripted personnel. The rank does give some commanding authority, and corporals may be given increased informal responsibilities by senior officers and NCOs. The rank carries two chevrons and a slight pay increase.
All conscripted personnel in the Military Police are awarded the rank after the recruitment period is over.
