The Career Readiness Certification helps to ensure a community workforce that is prepared for the jobs of the future, as well as for the jobs that sustain the current economic base.
NC’s Career Readiness Certification (CRC) is a recognizable skills credential that facilitates job placement, retention, and advancement. NC’s CRC is part of the National Career Readiness Certificate initiative.
CRC is based on WorkKeys. WorkKeys is a series of work-based assessments that can be used by any individual concerned about their own employability skills or by any employer concerned about the employability skills of the current or future workforce. The test results provide valuable information for individuals, employers, schools, colleges, state and local governments, and training programs.
