ACT WorkKeys® Profiling Training

When your organization is tasked with helping businesses and career seekers to succeed, it’s crucial to become an expert and a resource on the local jobs and the skills needed to perform them.  Using our approach, you receive input directly from subject matter experts to ensure a customized analysis which links to and validates the optimal WorkKeys assessments to use for hiring, advancement, and training decisions. 

The WorkKeys profiling method brings the specifics of a job, a curriculum, or an occupation into focus and your clients (such as employers, educational institutions, workforce development agencies) are able to use this information for a number of purposes including, but not limited to, the development of employee selection procedures and the identification of entry requirements into technical or other training programs. 

WorkKeys Profiling also supports ACT’s Work Ready Communities efforts and can be used as a method to achieve WRC maintaining goals.

Qualifications Required

To become an ACT-authorized Profiler, an individual successfully completes our training program conducted by industrial/organizational psychologists. This guided training program consists of online self-study activities, including live group webcasts, and culminates with an in person workshop to practice your skills.  

To ensure success, interested individuals should have experience with the following:

  • analyzing the requirements of jobs, training programs, or occupations
  •  the development and implementation of training programs for business and industry
  • acting as a group facilitator
  • federal regulations related to employment procedures
