Georgia Work Ready

The Governor’s Office of Workforce Development announced the end of the Work Ready Program effective July 1, 2012. The Work Ready Program’s 6-year initiative provided over 300,000 citizens of Georgia the opportunity to earn a certificate verifying their skill and knowledge level to potential employers.

Savannah Technical College will continue to offer WorkKeys® Assessments.
