There are three levels of certification: gold, silver, and bronze. The level of certificate earned depends on the recipient's scores on the WorkKeys® exam. WorkKeys® is a cognitive assessment which measures a tester's skill levels in the three key areas which have been found to be critical for workplace success: Reading for Information, Locating Information and Applied Mathematics. These three tests make up the core assessment for career readiness certification.
Testing sites have been set up throughout Wyoming. To find the testing center nearest to your location, please visit the Testing Locations page.
