The Turner School of Construction Management (TSCM) is the oldest community outreach program in Turner’s history. It was initiated in 1969, one year after our Affirmative Action Department was created, and soon became an opportunity to develop strategic business relationships with diverse, women-owned, veteran/disabled, LGBTQ, and small business contractors. Since then, Turner has provided a training course for these firms in the disciplines practiced in the construction industry.

The program is designed to prepare diverse, women-owned, veteran/disabled, LGBTQ, and small business contractors for contract procurement opportunities in California. TSCM has been uniquely designed to enhance technical, administrative and managerial skills in order to make a profit and build a reputation for efficiently managing construction projects.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
