Missouri schools strive to develop in students the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for a successful and productive career. Part of a successful career is to have skills necessary to succeed in the workforce and to meet employer expectations. To assist in meeting those expectations, Four Rivers Career Center and Rolla Technical Institute have developed a voluntary Career Preparatory Certificate program for the twenty-one schools in the East Central Consortium.
