Mike Rowe Works Certification

What is the Mike Rowe Works Certification?

The Mike Rowe Works foundation was started by Mike Rowe, the star of Dirty Jobs, to help bridge the gap in the skilled workforce. In 2008, the mikeroweWORKS foundation began a campaign for skilled labor workers. By creating the S.W.E.A.T pledge, Mike Rowe found a way to show the qualities he values most. 

The S.W.E.A.T pledge is twelve (12) statements outlining the four (4)  pillars of success, work ethic, personal responsibility, delayed gratification, and a positive attitude. Each of the statements in the pledge reflect Mr. Rowe's personal work experience ranging from entrepreneurs and hardworking skilled laborers. 

The mikeroweWORKS certification is administered through NC3 ( National Coalition of Certification Centers). Those who complete this program successfully will receive an NC3 industry-recognized certificate.
