WorkKeys and KeyTrain
Part of our mission as a testing center is to assist fellow Alaskans in their preparation for successful entry into the workforce. We provide testing to determine individual skill and knowledge levels, training to achieve the desired skill/knowledge levels and final testing to obtain certification verifying the attainment of the desired levels. We also provide monitoring of computerized or paper/pencil exams for professional certification.
Prices and times for testing are variable. In some instances, we may be able to offer a price reduction if there are multiple WorkKeys testers or multiple KeyTrain trainees. In some instances, we are also available to travel to alternate locations for assessments.
