National Career Readiness Certificate
Job applicants who earn an NCRC have shown they will “go the extra mile” to compete for a job. Employers know that holding an NCRC proves that an individual has documented their level of foundational workplace skills, and are ready to be trained in the specific requirements of a job.
The Math and Reading test portions of the NCRC meet the Essential Skills graduation requirement through the Oregon Department of Education. As a result of earning a certificate, Lane County high school students who were not slated to graduate, passed the NCRC and walked with their graduation class.
