Career Readiness Training

Today’s jobs demand more than a person typically learns during their high school career. Moreover, the changing shape of jobs across all business sectors demands the skills we’ve learned in the past be updated and new skills acquired. For some positions this means earning a degree and for others a certification. CCV’s Career Readiness Training system lays the foundation for all of the above. Our Governor’s Career Readiness Certificate and National Career Readiness Certificate programs will get you up to speed in core areas required to find success in today’s workplace. Our CRCpro tracks focus your training on specific fields and positions. Scheduling is flexible, and in some cases, the work can be completed tuition-free.
