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.
