RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – More than three dozen men and women graduated from the Turner School of Construction Management program. Forty-three graduated were honored in a late November ceremony.

Turner School of Construction Management teaches small contractors skills to grow their business.

“Running a business in today’s economy can be tough even for large, established firms,” Turner Vice President and General Manager of the Mid-Atlantic office Ken Jones said in a statement. “Despite their best efforts to stay afloat, many small firms, including minority, women, and veteran-owned contractors, face struggles every day. The Turner School of Construction Management is our way of providing training to these growing entrepreneurs that gives them the tools and skills they need to succeed.”

Turner School of Construction Management classes run once-a-week for two months.
