About Oregon Certified Work Ready Communities

The Certified Work Ready Communities (CWRC) initiative is a key economic development tool to prepare Oregon's workforce for tomorrow's industries and market Oregon's skilled workforce as a competitive advantage for business. Participating in this initiative helps unify and align Oregon's education, workforce and economic development strategies – which ultimately creates jobs, makes businesses more competitive, and attracts new businesses to the state.

The CWRC program works in concert with the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC), and serves as a validating tool that a community has a skilled labor force for targeted industries.
Governor Kitzhaber has identified the National Career Readiness Certificate as one of his administration's key workforce development strategies, and the NCRC was built into one of his first five economic development initiatives. Oregon has already embraced integrating the NCRC into statewide efforts to grow the economy, and CWRC expands on that approach.

Oregon's CWRC effort focuses on county and regional certifications to strengthen and support "labor sheds" that reach beyond single county boundaries.
