How It Works


Attend 60 hours of classroom instruction in a simulated workplace setting to learn and practice soft skills. Topics include: building your personal profile, showcasing your skills, employer expectations, communication strategies, critical thinking, problem solving, decision making, building better teams, customer service, conflict resolution, business ethics, safety in the workplace, workplace sensitivity, and personal brand.


Improve essential workplace skills through online, self-paced WorkKeys tutorials. Essential workplace skills include: reading workplace documents, graphic literacy, and applied math.


Participants are assessed on the ability to practice soft skills and essential workplace skills. As a result, graduates earn a WorkReadyNH Certificate and a National Career Readiness Certificate.

“This program helps one to learn many necessary skills for getting, keeping, and advancing in a job, from interviewing to communication and conflict resolution. During the program, a community is built among the participants, who are diverse in age, background, and experience.”
