Since 1969, Turner has offered Construction Management Training Programs, benefiting hundreds of M/WBE and SBEs across the U.S. The community affairs initiative was first spearheaded by then chairman Howard Turner who believed that the enhancement of minority and women business development was key in the construction industry.  Turner continues to strongly support the increased representation of M/WBE/SBEs in the industry and has an annual goal of 20 percent utilization of these enterprises in the areas of construction, subcontracting, prime contracting, joint venture relationships and goods and services.

Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis with priority consideration given to members of the co-sponsoring organization. There is no cost to participate, however, because we normally turn away interested firms, it is important that we have a firm commitment from those who are accepted.  There is a cost for withdrawal after the third class.
