The Wyoming Career Readiness Certificate Initiative will celebrate its second year in operation on Friday, July 9th. The Initiative, administered by the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, has issued over a total of 2,355 total certificates to Wyoming’s job seekers in the past two years.
Department of Workforce Services Director Joan Evans says that she has been pleased with the involvement with the initiative.
Wyoming’s Career Readiness Certificate is an assessment-based credential that gives employers, educators and job seekers a uniform measure of foundational skills. Wyoming is among 23 other states that have the Career Readiness Certificate. A certificate earned in Wyoming is recognized in the 23 states that are administering the Initiative, and Wyoming will recognize certificates earned in other states.
Wyoming’s Career Readiness Certificate is a result of a partnership between The Governor's Office, Wyoming Community Colleges, Wyoming Department of Education, Wyoming Department of Corrections and the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.
