Career-infused foundational skills curriculum aligned to national and state career readiness standards and assessments including ACT WorkKeys® and career readiness certifications. The core skills of Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents make up the career readiness 2.0 modules. Each module begins with a placement test. Based on placement test performance, the learner will enter the learning module at a level appropriate for their skills and then progresses through the rest of the module at their own pace.
Supplemental Skills is a self-paced course designed to enhance your career-ready portfolio. The Supplemental Skills are Business Writing, Applied Technology, and Workplace Observation. Each module contains a placement test which will recommend a starting level according to your initial understanding of the topic.
