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.

Does your business support job applicants with an ACT WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificate?

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 October 31, 2018 , while county-level data is starting from January 2012. State job profile data runs from January 2007 through October 31, 2018 , 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.


WorkKeys® assessments are used across the nation, and many states have built their own Career Readiness Certificates based upon WorkKeys assessment results. You will find an asterisk denoting those states. This website will continue to evolve as the first two rounds of participating states give us feedback on what they would like to see -- and based on your feedback, as well.
