Turner School of Construction Management Coming to Greater Washington DC

Largo, MD - One of the Greater Washington's largest general contractors, Turner Construction Company, will begin an 8-week seminar, the 2013 Turner School of Construction Management (TSCM), to provide management training and certification to potential subcontractors. TSCM will be hosted by the DC Small Business Development Center at Howard University. Beginning March 13 and running through May 1, the Turner School will provide educational opportunities to over 150 companies in the Greater Washington area.

Turner Construction Company is partnering with the DC Small Business Development Center, the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the District of Columbia small business community stakeholders to increase the prospects of growth for small, local contractors by teaching them how to successfully bid, propose to and work with a company the size of Turner. Each course of the program is taught by Turner staff and select industry partners. This year's topics include: field operations, accounting & banking, construction estimating, safety and sales & marketing. The hope is for the TSCM to better prepare the subcontractor market to win and conduct work in the Washington, DC area.

Turner Construction Company has awarded more than $1 billion in contracts a year to minority-owned businesses for the past 8 years and awarded over $1 billion to MBE contractors in 2012. To register for the 2013 Turner School of Construction Management, Click here.
