The National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) is a valuable, portable certificate that verifies three foundational skills–Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information and Locating Information. The NCRC is used by thousands of employers, employees and job applicants as a uniform measure of key workplace skills. It helps job applicants stand out from the crowd, and assures employers that applicants have the foundational skills needed to be successful on the job.
