The Career Readiness Certificate Program is a way to match a person's skills with the skills needed for jobs.  The program uses the WorkKeys system to measure three skill areas required by most employers:

  •   Reading for Information

  •   Applied Mathematics

  •   Locating Information

You can earn the WorkReady SC Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) by taking these three assessments and scoring at least a “3” on each.  The nationally recognized CRC certifies that you are WorkReady to employers.  Being ready for work is very important to employers when they seek to hire new employees.
