Prior to taking the official Work Keys assessments, some individuals may seek to first enhance their skills, to maximize their success. We also provide preliminary assessments, so that test-takers gain a sense of their scoring potential before taking the official assessments.

Employers may consider the CRC as a tool to assess employee skill levels and their current or prospective employees' qualifications for specific occupations. We provide occupational profiling for employers.
