Applicants are required to earn the Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) prior to program entry. A National Career Readiness Certificate is earned by completing three WorkKeys Assessments: Applied Math, Workplace Documents, and Graphic Literacy. The WorkKeys assessments are available through the Adult Education Departments: http://www.nemcc.edu/workforce/ae
- Applicants are required to earn the Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) at the Silver level. Scores are based on median level occupational profiles as listed by the ACT Job Profiler. http://profiles.keytrain.com/profile_search
Applicants with a score less than silver level on the CRC may appeal for entry into the program. The applicant must submit an appeal in writing to the office of the Associate Vice President of Career and Technical Education. The written request must specify the reason that the decision is unacceptable. In addition, the applicant must specify the facts that should be considered that would justify a different decision by the Program Committee. A majority vote by the Program Committee will constitute a final decision. Appeals must be received by July 31st for entrance to the program in the Fall semester.
