The WorkKeys tests for Career Readiness Certification, the CRC, will be offered six times this month in Wayne County.

The Wayne Occupational Readiness Keys for Success, WORKS, program will provide testing sessions from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on April 29; 12:30-4:30 p.m. on April 10 and 24; and 4:30-9:00 p.m. on April 16. All of these sessions will be held in Room 136 in the Walnut Building at Wayne Community College. Pre-registration is required, by calling 919-739-7004.

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 may be available.

The Airman and Family Readiness Center on Seymour Johnson Air Force Base offers free testing to military personnel and their dependents. The next session will be held on April 15, 1-4:30 p.m., at the Watkins Das Education Center computer lab. Pre-register by calling 919-772-1123.

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 also is located in Room 136 of the Walnut Building.

Individuals may earn bronze, silver, gold or platinum certificates based on their performance on the tests.
