Newton leaders pushing for Skilled Iowa designation
Becoming a Skilled Iowa community is a great way for a city to attract new business to the area, offer valid proof of a qualified workforce and showcase economic growth opportunities.
The purposed of Skilled Iowa is to solve the lack of middle-skill workers available in the workforce. One way of combating this is offering up a free assessment test. The test — the National Career Readiness Certification assessment test — would then give a certification of bronze, silver, gold and platinum which can show potential employers a person’s qualifications for any position.
Newton Development Corporation Executive Director Frank Liebl and Newton Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Darrell Sarmento are working hard for Newton to gain the designation as a Skilled Iowa community.
