Career Readiness Certificate

The Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) can help you find the right job or help your employer find the right job for you.

The CRC is a test-based credential that tells employers that you have workplace-ready skills in three key areas – math, reading for information and locating information. The CRC is a nationally recognized, EEOC-compliant industry-driven system of job profiling and assessment based on the WorkKeys testing program. There are no classes to attend, no books to buy and no homework to do. You simply take three tests and, based on your scores, receive a bronze, silver or gold level certificate that indicates your skill level. You can then present your Career Readiness Certificate to a potential or current employer as a proven measurement of your job skills.

CRC testing is conducted at Forsyth Tech’s West Campus (1300 Bolton Street, Winston-Salem). The cost of the CRC testing is $30. For more information, call 336.734.7772.
