“The more I participated, the more I became aware of the relevance to my present work situation.” - WorkReadyNH Student

The program provides assessment, instruction and credentialing in key skill areas, identified by employers as essential to workplace success. WorkReadyNH will:

  1. Assess basic workplace skills in Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, and Locating Information (the WorkKeys® Assessments)

  2. Help improve these skill areas to earn a National Career Readiness Certificate at the bronze, silver, gold or platinum level (through the self-paced and fully online KeyTrain™ learning modules)

  3. Provide classroom instruction in “soft-skill” practices identified by employers as key to workplace success (the Soft Skills course) in a mock business format

  4. Upon completion, provide a nationally recognized credential and a community college certificate that signals to employers that the WorkReadyNH participant has mastered key work-related skills and is ready to become a valuable employee
