GA Work Ready

Georgia Work Ready Certificate

What is the Georgia Work Ready?

Georgia Work Ready Assessment is an internet-based test which shows how ready, or trainable, you are for a particular job based on three primary skills:  Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, and Locating Information.  Each of these three skills is scored based on your answers.  There is also an un-scored portion of the Work Ready called the Talent Assessment which provides a profile of your workplace behaviors. Once enrolled, consider making the Georgia Work Ready Certificate a part of your career plan.
