WorkKeys Testing Information

ACT WorkKeys® is an assessment system that measures “real world” job skills that employers believe are critical to job success. Muskegon Community College is your site to attain the WorkKeys  National Career Readiness Certification or the WorkKeys Parapro Certificate.

The WorkKeys System is also often used by employers and organizations to assess prospective or current employees in many workforce skill areas. 

The National Career Readiness Certificate™

The certificate is designed to confirm a person’s competence in a specific set of workplace skills. A successful candidate can use their certificate to compliment other traditional credentials such as a diploma or college degree. Many employers use this certification to verify that an individual has essential core employability skills.

The assessment consists of the WorkKeys Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information tests.
