Attention upcoming Sr.'s: Students graduating as a CTE completer have the exclusive opportunity to receive the NC Work Readiness Certificate after taking ACT's WorkKeys. North Carolina’s Career Readiness Certification (CRC) is designed to meet the needs of both employers and job seekers. It serves as a portable credential that can be more meaningful to employers than a high school degree or a resume citing experience in a different job setting.
