Career Readiness Certificates - WorkKeys

The National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) uses three WorkKeys® foundational skill assessments – Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information – to verify to employers anywhere in the United States that an individual has essential core employ-ability skills.

  • The ACT has researched more than 17,000 occupations, and these three skills are highly important to the majority of jobs in the workplace.
  • The Certificate is an easily understood and nationally valued credential that certifies the attainment of these workplace skills.
  • When employers ask for the National Career Readiness Certificate for jobs in their workplace, they tap into the most qualified labor pool available.
