Career Readiness Certificate from Michigan’s West Coast WIRED Initiative

Michigan’s West Coast WIRED Initiative uses the Career Readiness Certificate, based on WorkKeys® and O*NET Job Zone information, as a means of linking worker readiness to jobs available in the local economy. WorkKeys, an online assessment linked to O*NET occupations, measures foundational skills of Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information. It assigns a score and grants a Career Readiness Certificate. The certificate is then related to jobs available in the local economy. The Career Readiness Certificate is being used in several other states as a part of state, regional, and local workforce development initiatives, including North Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, Kentucky, and New Mexico. Many others are in the process of implementing a Career Readiness Certificate program.
