Creative Corridor Career Readiness Certification
Skills Advantage, a pilot-program for Iowa’s National Career Readiness Certificate, was designed to develop and communicate the skills needed for employment within Iowa's Creative Corridor through a series of assessments. Successful completion of these assessments allows individuals to attain career readiness certification.
The program certifies worker readiness in three major areas: Locating Information, Applied Math, and Reading for Information. Certification is provided at one of four levels: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum.
Career Readiness Consortium
Multiple businesses in the Corridor have endorsed the career readiness certification program. This innovative program provides an opportunity for employers and job seekers to have a common language regarding skills, helps job seekers gain employment and reach successful performance in the workplace, and assists employers with finding potential employees with specific skills.
