The public has several opportunities to take the WorkKeys tests for Career Readiness Certification this month.

The Wayne Occupational Readiness Keys for Success program will provide testing sessions from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday and on Jan. 19; from 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 20 and 27; and from 5 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, and on Jan. 26 and 31. All will be held on Wayne Community College's main campus in Goldsboro. Pre-registration is required.

Cost to take the set of three skill assessments (applied mathematics, locating information, and reading for information) is $30. Assistance to cover the cost is available in some cases.

Those wishing to prepare for the CRC may take advantage of the self-directed instruction and skills upgrade training offered in the WORKS Lab, Room 143 of the Wayne Learning Center on the college's campus.

Call 739-7004 for details about the CRC or the lab, and to pre-register for a testing session.

Individuals may earn bronze, silver or gold certificates based on their performance on the tests. The CRC is recognized by employers across the state as a proven measurement of job skills.

WORKS is a collaborative effort of the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce, Wayne Community College, Wayne County Public Schools, County of Wayne, JobLink/ESC, City of Goldsboro, and the Eastern Carolina Workforce Development Board. It is housed on the Wayne Community College campus.
