You can earn a WorkKeys Certificate

Jobs are becoming more complex every day and Vermont employers are looking for workers who possess the reading, writing and math skills that make them easier to train on the job.

The WorkKeys® Assessment measures the “real world” skills which employers believe are critical to job success. These skills are valuable for any skilled for professional occupation and at all levels of education. Students can use their WorkKeys® scores to determine how their own skills measure up to those required in their chosen career field.

The National Career Readiness Certificate Program is composed of these three WorkKeys Assessments:

• Applied Mathematics
• Reading for Information
• Locating Information

You can earn a Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum Certificate to show employers that you have the skills they want and to help you stand out from other job applicants.


Here's what students have said . . .


This program will help me get a job that I’m trained and ready for and so I can become financially independent.

I need to get my high school credential.  That’s stopping me from getting the job I want.


I have medical skills from being an LNA, but I need to improve my reading, math, and spelling if I want to go on to college.  Then I can work my way up to management.

After I finish here, I’ll do more classes, maybe at college, so I can go into family law or criminology.


To get a good paying job, like in accounting, I need better reading skills – especially comprehension.
