Reston, VA – July 15, 2021 – Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing (OCCH), a mission-driven organization that leverages private capital for the construction, rehabilitation and preservation of affordable housing, has selected Meridian LMS as a replacement of their former learning management system to better serve their clients and to fuel their growth as they strategically grow their platform.
The Affordable Housing Training Academy (AHTA) is dedicated to providing access to high quality training at an affordable price point to owners and managers of affordable housing from across the country.
“We were searching for a learning management solution that enables our clients to have privately-branded landing pages with robust capabilities to create learning paths for property managers and service technicians alike,” said Tony DiBlasi, EVP of Operations and Asset Management for Ohio Capital Corporation. “With Meridian LMS, we can create strategic training programs that meet the unique needs of all of our learner audiences.”
OCCH also wanted an LMS to help them shift from a training program that was primarily comprised of instructor-led courses to a model that is mostly eLearning. They also wanted the ability to easily identify a learner’s knowledge gaps and help them to create learning pathways that direct them to available OCCH courses and other training options that best meet their needs. Strong eCommerce and security features were also critical to their selection.
“In addition to the robust system capabilities, we’ve also been impressed with the thoughtful manner in which they guided us through the implementation process in deploying their platform. They have a really high-quality staff and are very organized” said DiBlasi.
“OCCH addresses income equality, affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization in a variety of ways” said Sean Osborne, SVP, Product and Growth Strategy at Meridian. “We are delighted to help OCCH deliver training to partners that will work to improve the communities they serve.”
