About Regions

By working together, employers and ACT® are closing the employment skills gap in Work Ready Communities (WRC) in order to drive economic growth. Employers in participating regions, states, and counties leverage the WorkKeys® National Career Readiness Certificate® (NCRC®), the leading national workplace skills credential. The NCRC credential validates an individual's abilities in several business skill areas relevant to a wide range of employers, from manufacturing to management.

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

    Please join this list.

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

    Please contact us if you have comments, questions or would like to receive more information.
