Still wondering what the CRC is and what it can do for you?

Join us for a brand-new CRC Information Session to find out how you can get a leg up in the job search with an N.C. Career Readiness Certificate (N.C. CRC) from Charlotte Works & CPCC!

Held every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at your NCWorks Career Center at 1401 W. Morehead St. (28208), you'll learn why you should invest the time to obtain the N.C. CRC, how long it takes, what employers are looking for candidates with the CRC and how to get started earning this credential for free

The N.C. CRC is a portable credential that shows employers that you have the basic skills necessary to be successful in a particular job. When you earn an N.C. CRC, you’re automatically eligible for the National CRC, which is recognized across state borders. Since the CRC accurately indicates whether you have the skills required to be trained in a new career, the CRC may be more meaningful to employers than a high school degree.

To earn a CRC, you'll take WorkKeys® assessments in three major areas: Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information and Locating Information. Your test results can earn a bronze, silver or gold certificate. The higher the certificate level, the more jobs you’re qualified to perform.

Learn more about the N.C. Career Readiness Certificate. 

Charlotte Works and Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) are partnering to bring you a FREE*, open CRC prep lab!
