You should use VONAPP if you are a U.S. military veteran who wants to apply for compensation, pension, or vocational rehabilitation benefits using the Internet. If you are now receiving any of those benefits, don’t use VONAPP to apply for the same benefit or an increase in that benefit. Instead, contact the V A Regional Office which handles your benefit.

Here's what people are saying about TCMI

Dear Bob,

Deciding to take the Turnkey Const. Management course has turned out to be the best thing I've done in a long time. Not only did you provide me with a courteous, patient, and knowledgeable Instructor, but in addition, some of the finest text and software programs available. Also your dedication to ensuring your students find adequate employment is not only commendable, but above and beyond the norm. Without any effort on my part, other than returning a phone message provided to me by Turnkey, I was hired by a company as an entry-level estimator. The starting pay was $30,000 a year, but with the school behind me as a reference, and my own construction background, I started at $40,000, with a raise review in 90 days!! I can't express enough gratitude to you for your concern of your students. If there's anything I can do for you, let me know.

His Story…….

Hey Bob!!!. I am doing well with more than two years with my current job and this is great stuff. I look at plans all day and do quantity take-offs for all flooring materials with trims and even special / custom stuff too. In the two years I’ve been here, I have gotten three raises and I am making almost $14,000 more than two years ago! Holy &%$*!!! Does it get any better than this??? And again I have to say thanks to all of you for making all of this possible. I am in a great place in my career and have never felt more grounded in my life. I did it! I made it work for me and never looked back.. Tell all of your students to…….

               “JUST DO IT”!!!

Thanks again and good luck to all of you…

Her Story….

Mr. Turney: I just wanted to write a quick note on how much I enjoyed these classes. As a female in this industry, I need every advantage I can get and I think that Turnkey has given me that. I would highly recommend this school to anyone and everyone who wants to further their knowledge in the construction industry. Thanks so much for the knowledge I have gained.

Vocational Consultants…

I began referring my clients to Turnkey Construction Management Institute, Inc. in 1994. Since that time I have sent dozens of my clients through their course of instruction.

Nearly all of my enrolled clients have successfully completed their program and quickly secured good paying jobs in their field. I feel confident in recommending others to utilize their services.

Employer Graduates…

I would like to thank you for your help locating estimators for the 3 contractors I referred to you. We are currently looking for an estimator in our chain link fencing division and I would appreciate your help in finding another qualified person for this position. Having gone through your school myself, I am well aware that the curriculum and training are excellent.
