Career Assessments Free for Some Kentuckians For Limited Time
Certain Kentuckians including veterans, the disabled and people who’ve been unemployed for more than 26 weeks are eligible for a free round of career testing.
The free testing allows qualified applicants to earn National Career Readiness Certification, or NCRS. Hundreds of businesses use the program that measures career readiness in the areas of applied math, locating information, and reading for information.
The Education and Workforce Cabinet sponsors the program and says funding for the free testing is limited.
The testing is available at select One-Stop Career Centers across the state, including locations in Madisonville, Hopkinsville, Paducah and Mayfield.
