Michigan National Career Readiness Certificate
Did you know that 80 percent of all jobs are projected to require skills beyond those gained in high school? You need to show an employer you have the skills to hit the ground running – documented skills based on the “real world” of any workplace – from a welding shop to a hospital. Show an employer you are job ready with the Michigan National Career Readiness Certificate. The MI NCRC is a nationally recognized credential that verifies to an employer that you have essential skills in applied math, reading for information and locating information – skills that are valuable to any occupation – skilled or professional – and at any level of education. The MI NCRC complements the GED, high school diploma or degree you’ve earned from a community college or university, and can often be more meaningful to an employer than a resume listing experience in different job settings.
