(As of July 1, 2012, the Governor’s Office of Workforce Development does not cover the cost of the Work Ready assessments.

 

All assessments taken individually are $25 each. The cost to take all 3 test is $75. 

The Work Ready Certification Program is a complete solution for making quick comparisons between a person's skill levels and the job requirements by providing a portable skills credential, the Work Ready Certificate, which is easily and universally understood and valued by employers and certificate recipients. Through the Work Ready program, skills that employers consider essential to job success are measured and documented by the Work Ready Certificate. Certified skill levels are then matched with existing or customized job profile requirements.

Benefits of Using the Work Ready Certificate Program

Employers can simplify making reliable decisions about hiring, training, and program development needs by matching job profile information with assessment scores of Work Ready Certified potential and incumbent employees.

Hundreds of thousands of WorkKeys assessments are administered each year to help individuals assess their current skill levels and to determine how improving their skills can lead to better-paying jobs. Students, businesses, and organizations use the WorkKeys tests to improve skill levels and strengthen communication, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills.

Companies that use the Work Ready Certification Program to assess their incoming and current workforce can achieve substantial benefits.

Job Seekers

Earning the Work Ready Certificate enhances employability by indicating skill and knowledge levels to potential employers. The certificate shows job applicants have the portable skills — reasoning, reading, and basic mathematics— to serve as a foundation for training. It also tells employers that they are ready, willing and able to work and learn.

Certificate holders have an advantage when applying for jobs, a complement to a diploma and resume. For employees already on the job, a certificate can demonstrate skills needed for a promotion or for training that leads to greater productivity and effectiveness.  Southern Crescent Technical College encourages all of its graduates to become Work Ready certified.
