ACE recommends that three credit hours be awarded to recipients who earn specific levels of the credential.
“This development will intensify the momentum building behind the NCRC, a credential now recognized as the most effective strategy for certifying workplace skills and predicting workplace success,” said Jon Whitmore, ACT chief executive officer. “The credential can now serve a larger segment of the U.S. population by expanding postsecondary opportunities for returning service members, dislocated and emerging workers, career and technical education students, and many others. This will ultimately create important dividends for the U.S. economy.”
