*National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) *
The NCRC is a portable, national credential verifying to employers, anywhere in the United States, that an individual has essential core employability skills in Applied Mathematics, Locating Information and Reading for Information. This easily understood and nationally valued credential certifies attainment of these employability skills at a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum level of achievement.

To earn a National Career Readiness Certificate, individuals must successfully complete assessments that measure cognitive abilities, examining some of the "real world" foundational skills critical to job success. ACT (the college testing company) has researched more than 16,000 occupations, concluding that these three skills are very important for almost any occupation--skilled or professional--at any level of education.
