            Cumberland County Seal in blue and goldFAYETTEVILLE – Cumberland County was certified as an ACT Work Ready Community in May after completing a two-year certification process.

            The ACT WRC initiative helps counties enhance their economic development efforts by ensuring members of the community, from students just entering the workforce to long-time employees, understand the skills employers require and how they can prepare themselves for success.

            The initiative is powered by the ACT WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC), which is a portable credential that measures an individual’s foundational workplace skills, such as math and reading. Employers are assured that a candidate who holds an NCRC is prepared to quickly learn job-specific skills.
