About Missouri Certified Work Ready Communities

Missouri’s CWRC initiative is a voluntary effort to align workforce and education to meet the economic needs of the state and local communities. It is guided by key community leaders (elected officials, economic development, business leaders, chambers of commerce, educators and workforce development, in each county).

Missouri’s vision for the Certified Work Ready Communities is to attract, retain, and develop a workforce with education and fundamental skills-Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information- to succeed in the 21st Century. 

Missouri’s effort for Work Ready Communities will result in strengthening existing businesses, attracting new businesses, growing jobs, and developing a strong talent pipeline for the state’s future growth nationally and globally.  For more information, please visit the Missouri Work Ready Communities website.

This website reports the ACT® National Career Readiness Certificates earned at the county and state level and the progress being made by those participating states and counties in the ACT Work Ready Community initiative. This site only represents data stored in the ACT RegiSTAR™ system, a web-based reporting and management tool for National Career Readiness Certificates.


State and national NCRC data runs from January 2006 through March 31, 2016 , while county-level data is starting from January 2012. State job profile data runs from January 2007 through March 31, 2016 , while national job profile data reaches back to 1993. Again, please note that county-level NCRC data collection began in January 2012 for WorkKeys Internet Version, and in July 2012 for pencil and paper assessments. State and national certificate totals include historical data prior to 2012.


WorkKeys® assessments are used across the nation, and many states have built their own Career Readiness Certificates based upon WorkKeys assessment results. You will find an asterisk denoting those states. This website will continue to evolve as the first two rounds of participating states give us feedback on what they would like to see -- and based on your feedback, as well.
