Workforce Assessments

How to Earn Your North Carolina Career Readiness Certification

Earning your CRC is as easy as one, two, three!

Step 1

Employability Lab – Visit one of the Rowan-Cabarrus employability labs. During your first visit, you will work with an instructor to assess your current skills and develop a training plan to develop the skills you lack and hone the skills you already possess. Your first visit to the employability lab is free and no appointment is necessary.

Step 2

Follow Your Training Plan – Continue to study online through the hybrid program or in person at an employability lab if Step 1 indicated you need further review. Scholarships may be available to cover tuition and fees. Visit one of the employability labs to learn more.

Step 3

WorkKeys Tests – Once you have completed your training and feel you are ready to take the WorkKeys tests, return to an employability lab for scheduling.
