The employee payoff is job satisfaction, increased self-confidence, opportunities and wages within the company. The employer payoff is found in reduced turnover and associated training costs, increased productivity and company overall success, impacting the state's bottom line.

Oklahoma Career Readiness Certificate: 
A Governor's Council for Workforce and Economic Development Initiative


Within today's global economy, finding and keeping a job requires higher skill levels than ever before. Employers want workers with documented skills based on the "real world" of any work place from a welding shop to a hospital.  The Governor's Council for Workforce and Economic Development (GCWED) and many of its partner agencies rolled out a system of assessment and certification designed to meet the needs of both employees and employers.

The Oklahoma Career Readiness Certificate (OKCRC), a career readiness certificate program is a portable credential documenting potential or incumbent employees possess certain fundamental skills required by employers here and across the country.  The OKCRC uses nationally recognized assessments to measure skills and provide a common language between educators, businesses, and community members. The OKCRC uses the assessment system to validate the skills and skill levels of job seekers and compare them to the skills needed for jobs in today's economy. 

To date, the initiative involves the assessment of over 70,000 potential and incumbent employees and hundreds of pre-assessment, assessment, and training sites across the state.

How It Works!
