Workplace Readiness is a class designed to help juniors and seniors attain a Career Readiness Certificate (CRC). The following is taken directly from the "arkansasatwork.org" webite:
An Arkansas CRC is a portable credential based upon the WorkKeys® assessments that demonstrates to employers that an individual possesses the basic workplace skills required for 21st century jobs.
Getting a CRC will allow an individual to show prospective employers that he or she possesses the basic skills they are looking for.
Even if a job seeker has a GED, high school diploma or post secondary degree, the Arkansas CRC further verifies that he can handle tasks such as finding information, reading instructions and directions, and working with numbers - that are common in today's workplaces.
Students in this class will do computer based learning in order to get ready for the CRC exam.
