Workforce Assessment & Readiness

A-B Tech assists employers and employees in workforce solutions by offering tools that measure the workplace skills that can affect job performance.

  • WorkKeys assessments are unique — unlike other assessments, they don’t simply give an indication of reading and writing competency. Instead, they measure a range of hard and soft skills relevant to any occupation, at any level, and across industries.
  • National Career Readiness Certificate™ — Successful completion of WorkKeys assessments can lead to earning an National Career Readiness Certificate™ (NCRC®)—a credential that verifies foundational workplace skills. Tens of thousands of employers recognize the value of the NCRC, and many recommend the credential to candidates. The National Career Readiness Certificate™ (NCRC®) is a valuable credential for anyone, whether they plan to go directly to work after high school or pursue postsecondary paths. ACT WorkKeys also offer additional assessments to measure interests, values and behaviors that can lead to greater job satisfaction.
  • WorkKeys Curriculum — is a comprehensive career training course that is an integrated approach to exploring careers and skill requirements, building workplace skills, and creating life-literacy with such skills as financial awareness and job searching. The program leads users to certification with WorkKeys® assessments and the NCRC. It is a powerful way to build self-esteem, provide real credentials, and simply set people up for success.
