The WorkKeys tests for Career Readiness Certification (CRC) will be offered six times in August.

The Wayne Occupational Readiness Keys for Success (WORKS) program will provide testing sessions from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 7 and 28; 12:30-4:30 p.m. on Aug. 2 and 23; and 4:30-9 p.m. on Aug. 15. All of these sessions will be held on Wayne Community College's main campus. Pre-registration is required by calling 919-739-7004.

A testing session for exiting military personnel and dependents will be held 12:30-4:30 p.m. on Aug. 21 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 WCC.

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.
