What is National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC)

The National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) is an industry-recognized, portable, evidence-based credential that certifies essential skills needed for workplace success.

To earn an NCRC certificate, the WorkKeys® Assessment is used to identify your skill levels in three specific areas:

  • Applied Mathematics
  • Locating Information
  • Reading for Information

WorkKeys assessments measure “real world” skills that employers believe are critical to job success. Test questions are based on situations in the everyday work world.

There are four achievement levels for the NCRC: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
