What is an Arkansas Career Readiness Certification?

An Arkansas Career Readiness Certificate is a portable credential based upon the WorkKeys® assessments that demonstrates to employers that an individual possesses the basic workplace skills required for 21st century jobs. Getting a CRC will allow an individual to show prospective employers that he or she possesses the basic skills they are looking for.

Even if a job seeker has a high school diploma, GED or post-secondary degree, the Arkansas CRC further verifies that he can handle tasks such as reading instructions and directions, working with figures, and finding information - tasks common in today's workplace.
