The public will have four opportunities to take the WorkKeys tests for Career Readiness Certification in the remainder of July.

The Wayne Occupational Readiness Keys for Success program will provide testing sessions 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on July 10; 12:30-4:30 p.m. on July 26; and 4:30-9 p.m. on July 18. All of these sessions will be held on Wayne Community College's main campus in Goldsboro.

Pre-registration is required by calling (919) 739-7004.

A testing session for exiting military personnel and dependents will be held 1-4 p.m. on July 17 at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base library computer lab. Pre-registration for that test may be done through the Airman and Family Readiness Center at (919) 772-1123.

Cost to take the set of three skill assessments (applied mathematics, locating information, and reading for information) is $30 but assistance to cover that cost is available.

Those wishing to prepare for the CRC may take advantage of the self-directed instruction and skills upgrade training offered in the WORKS Lab, which is located in Room 143 of the Wayne Learning Center at the college.

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, housed at WCC, 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.
