Do You have the Competitive Edge?
Employers are constantly seeking a competitive edge. Employers need employees who possess the foundational skills necessary that set them apart as “workplace ready.” And, employers know that by hiring individuals who have acquired a CRC, there can be a reduction in hidden costs associated with lost production time, turnover rate and on-the-job training.
Successful completion of ACT WorkKeys® assessments in Applied Mathematics, Locating Information and Reading for Information can lead to earning a Career Readiness Certificate (CRC). This certificate demonstrates workplace readiness in possessing these basic foundational skills, which are the fundamental, portable skills that are necessary for conveying and receiving information critical to training and workplace success.
Even if a jobseeker has a high school diploma, GED or post-secondary degree, the Arkansas CRC further verifies that they can handle tasks such as reading instructions and directions, working with figures, and finding information – tasks common in today’s workplace.
Whether you have a job or are job hunting, you can set yourself apart with the competitive edge of having a Career Readiness Certificate. Contact your local Arkansas Workforce Center today to find out more.
CRC Recognized Coast to Coast
A CRC has always been a portable credential; however, in 2014, all Arkansas certificates, past and present, began being recorded in ACT’s national RegiSTAR™ database. The transfer of these records to this national RegiSTAR™ further validates an individual’s certificate, no matter in what state they seek employment.
RegiSTAR™ is a web-based system used for the reporting and management of National Career Readiness Certificates. RegiSTAR™ automatically sweeps the ADWS test site for ACT WorkKeys® scores and automatically registers certificates in the ACT national database. This system allows administrators to pull certificates and test data reports. Additionally, online accounts are automatically created for individuals to easily access and share certificate details.
