WorkKeys - National Career Readiness Certificate

WorkKeys® is a career skills assessment tool that builds and measures an individual’s workplace skills in 3 core subjects: Applied Math, Workplace Documents, and Graphic Literacy. Employers believe these skills to be essential to job success.


A person must test in these 3 subject areas and score a level 3 or better in each WorkKeys® assessment to earn a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC). Depending on a person’s score, certificates are awarded in the following levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Individuals can add their certificates to their resumes to show they have the readiness skills for work. Businesses use the NCRC on Guam and nationwide to select, hire, train, retain, and promote.

Guam Law, P.L. 31-254, also requires a mandatory skills assessment for GovGuam employment to help ensure and sustain a community workforce prepared for current and future jobs.
