Career Readiness Credential classes moved to online during COVID-19 pandemic, and are free
MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College is making the job search, and finding the right candidate, a-whole-lot easier and free from the comfort of your own home.
The college has been hosting monthly orientations, help sessions and testing to assist community members in mastering seven core skills that employers say they want employees to have, and that comprise Governor Doug Ducey’s Arizona Career Readiness Credential (ACRC).
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, ACRC classes will be available online. The curriculum is set at your own pace and proctored ZOOM testing sessions are available each month. Help sessions via ZOOM will also be available.
During the first session in February, various MCC employees took the test to see where they stand on career readiness skills.
“It’s a great opportunity for everybody, both current students and community members because it’s free. There’s free training, free information sessions at the college, and it’s shows what employers and employees would bring to the table,” said Dr. Jen Woolston, Bullhead City campus associate dean who took part in the first session.
The ACRC will show potential employers the career-ready skills job candidates have to offer. The test validates an individual’s mastery of seven areas that are relevant to a large majority of jobs such as, applied mathematics, reading for information, workplace data and graphics, professionalism, teamwork and collaboration, communication, and critical thinking and problem solving.
The ACRC is a major initiative set forth by Governor Ducey in partnership with ARIZONA@WORK, and the Office of Economic Opportunity makes the Arizona Career Readiness Credential available to job seekers across the state.
