Iowa Work Ready Communities

The Work Ready Community initiative is an effort to align workforce and education to meet the economic needs of the state and local communities. It is guided by key community leaders (elected officials, economic development, business leaders, chambers of commerce, educators and workforce development, in each county).

The vision for Work Ready Communities is to attract, retain, and develop a workforce with education and fundamental skills- Workplace Documents, Applied Math and Graphic Literacy – to succeed in the 21st Century.
Having certified Work Ready Communities in the state will result in strengthening existing businesses, attracting new businesses, growing jobs and developing a strong talent pipeline for the state’s future growth nationally and globally.

More on how to engage

This website reports the ACT® WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificates earned at the county and state level and the progress being made by those participating states and counties in the ACT Work Ready Community initiative. This site only represents data stored in the ACT RegiSTAR™ system, a web-based reporting and management tool for ACT WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificates.


State and national ACT WorkKeys NCRC data runs from January 2006 through September 30, 2019 , while county-level data is starting from January 2012. State job profile data runs from January 2007 through September 30, 2019 , while national job profile data reaches back to 1993. Again, please note that county-level ACT WorkKeys NCRC data collection began in January 2012 for WorkKeys Internet Version, and in July 2012 for pencil and paper assessments. State and national certificate totals include historical data prior to 2012.
