Training Program for Minority and Women Owned Businesses to Begin in June
(PRNewswire) — Turner Construction Company’s Chicago office will hold its 22nd annual Turner School of Construction Management (TSCM) training program for owners of minority- and women-business enterprises (M/WBEs) in the construction industry, beginning on June 22nd. The program is offered at no cost and provides an opportunity for participants to further develop and improve their skills, while networking with others in the construction industry.
The Turner School of Construction Management is designed to provide M/WBE contractors with the tools necessary to pursue work in the private and public sectors. Participants learn the essentials of managing a business, including how to develop a business plan, estimate and bid a larger job, obtain bonding, enforce safety principles and establish and manage credit, in order to become better equipped to compete for progressively larger contracts. One goal of the program is to develop a pool of minority contractors with the necessary skills to perform work on future Turner projects.
