Skills Assessment – Career Readiness Certificate
The Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) is a test-based credential that tells employers that you have workplace-ready skills in three key areas. 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 — Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information and Locating Information. 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.
