For Education and Workforce—ACT WorkKeys Digital Badging

What Are WorkKeys Digital Badges?

Digital badges (also known as digital credentials) quickly demonstrate an earner’s skills and competencies. WorkKeys digital badges are earned by taking WorkKeys Assessments, which measure portable career readiness skills. Job seekers, employees, and college applicants use WorkKeys digital badges when seeking new career and educational opportunities. 

Individuals who earn an ACT WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) or take the ACT WorkKeys Essential Skills Assessment can receive a digital badge to communicate their accomplishments. Many earners will include a badge on their resumes, websites, and social media profiles.

The WorkKeys NCRC measures and certifies the foundational work skills — Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, Workplace Documents — needed for success in jobs across industries and occupations.

ACT WorkKeys Essential Skills measures individuals’ employability skills — Integrity, Work Ethic, Collaboration, Resilience, Leadership, and Creativity — that predict workplace success.
