CRC stands for Career Readiness Certificate. You have to do 80+ topics which have 3-4 or more sub topics with a quiz at the end. Then once you've finished all those you take a 3 big tests. 1 each on Locating (the most difficult one), Reading, and Math (I think). You can earn certificates in different levels (Bronze, Sliver, Gold and Platinum). The goal is at least Gold. Basically what it boils down to is a group of tests to show that you are trainable. Many companies across the US are requesting this certificate from their employees. Since I teach in teh department that teaches this they have nicely put a little pressure on getting it as well. I will admit it is kinda unfair to teach students something that you know little about.

BUT I do like your Couch, ReCline. That's more how I feel lately.
