In cooperation with the Governor’s Office and the Office of Workforce Development, Faulkner State is helping implement the Alabama Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) program. Alabama’s Career Readiness Certificate serves as a common language between employers, job seekers and educators. It is a portable skills credential, assuring employers that a job applicant has the basic skills they seek.
The Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) is a credential based on ACT’s WorkKeys® assessment that gives employers and career seekers a uniform measure of key workplace skills. WorkKeys® is an assessment tool that defines, measures and certifies that individuals have the skills and abilities they need to succeed in entry-level work in the 21st century workplace. These skills are for any occupation – skilled or professional – and at any level of education.
