National Career Readiness Certificate

The National Career Readiness Certificate examination assesses an individual’s skill level in three areas deemed critical for employability: Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information. ACT, the organization that developed the college testing standard, researched over 16,000 occupations in the process of developing the NCRC.

NCRC assesses the career readiness of the workforce and serves as a reliable predictor for workplace success. Many employers across the U.S. ask for or require NCRC scores as a part of their application process.

NCRC is awarded at four levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Each is an objective validation to employers that an individual has met or exceeded necessary foundational skills. For example, a Gold certificate verifies an individual has the necessary skills for 93% of all occupations. Employers may use NCRC scores for baseline applicant screening; hiring and promotion decisions; and targeting employee training and development.

The NCRC exam can be administered at your workplace in a group setting or individually at other locations. The NCRC exam is being offered at the present time at no charge to Muhlenberg residents and companies. For more information call (270) 338-4102.
