specifically for veterans and veteran businesses. The four-day session was held at Turner’s corporate office in San Diego. Classes were taught by company staff and community partners. The San Diego office is the only business unit nationwide to host three school sessions.  The sessions also occur every spring and fall in partnership with the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority.

The school is a series of classes available to any company or individual in any segment of the construction industry, and is designed to educate subcontractors on the industry’s newest technology and best practices.  Turner’s training program began in 1969 in Cleveland, Ohio.  Since its inception, the training has taken place in 70 cities, and over 32,000 businesses have taken the classes.  The classes are lead by community leaders and Turner executives who focus on specific aspects of the construction industry such as estimating, purchasing, logistics, finances, insurance and bonding.

I was truly impressed with the Turner staff and their genuine commitment to veterans,” said school student Robert Ledferd, market director for SOS Tradesmen. I hope that in the future I will have the opportunity to sponsor this program.”

Vera Howell, community affairs director for Turner, says, “We have a excellent panel of presenters to teach industry best practices in virtually all areas of construction,” said Vera Howell, community affairs director for Turner. “We are especially excited to offer this quality program to veterans.  They give so much to our country, and this is one small way we can show our appreciation and give back to them.”

Voice Your Opinion

We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
