"The Skilled Iowa Initiative is a
critical step in improving the quality of the workforce in Iowa," said Governor
Branstad. "It is important Iowa's government, private industry and our
educational system work together to find innovative solutions."
"This program is the right move for our
state," said Director Wahlert. "Skilled Iowa provides a universal syste4m of
assessing workers' skills and abilities for employers, as well as promoting
workers' development and improvement."
The program will allow employers to
determine the baseline skills for potential employees. The program uses a
universal testing system that rates the skills and abilities of those in Iowa's
workforce, awarding an NCRC certificate upon completion of the program. The NCRC
certificate allows workers to more accurately display their skills to current
and potential employers. More details are available at the website:
"The National Career Readiness
Certificate is an effective measure of foundational skills and will help
businesses confidently hire workers who are right for the job," said Lt.
Governor Reynolds. "It will help employers evaluate an individual worker's
abilities, allowing for more accurate matching of skill sets with those required
by the job."
