Career Readiness Certification
The Career Readiness Certification (CRC) is an assessment-based credential that gives employers and career seekers a uniform measure of key workplace skills. Currently, job seekers and incumbent workers are increasingly called upon to demonstrate a more advanced set of skills – or at least the ability to develop those skills through on-the-job training.
North Carolina ’s Career Readiness Certification (CRC) is designed to meet the needs of both employers and job seekers in this transitioning economy.
• For employers, the CRC offers a reliable means of determining whether a potential employee has the necessary literacy, numeracy and problem solving skills to be “job ready.”
• For job seekers, the CRC serves as a portable credential that can be more meaningful to employers than a high school degree or a resume citing experience in a different job setting.
The CRC is based upon WorkKeys, a nationally recognized, skills assessment tool developed by ACT Inc.
