For almost 40 years, the Omega Performance credit training curriculum has provided a proven successful learning path to lending organizations throughout the world. Today, the effectiveness of our curriculum is enhanced substantially by applying modern learning principles, namely, through the implementation of learner-centric blended training. Blended training is based on the premise that students will deepen skill understanding and improve skill sustainment by 1) learning online at their own time, pace, place, or path; and, 2) participating in an in-person, group-based learning experience.
The Omega Performance blended training experience achieves the goals of delivering a dynamic, learner-centric approach that allows organizations to increase access to learning, enable the development of a sustained credit culture, and reduce unnecessary time-wasting activity.
More training does not equate to better training – in fact, the best return on training investment is attained by delivering high quality training, to the right people, at the right time. This is the guiding principle behind our blended learning framework.
The first step towards effective blended learning is to provide learners with educational content that is applicable to their professional development. Omega’s E-Learning courses offer a highly interactive experience, maintaining high learner interest that enhances understanding and application of the material. Supported by pre-tests and post-tests that gauge progress and results, these courses are the foundation for credit success. Gone are the days of un-engaging, static print-based textbooks and workbooks.

Skills Application Labs
After establishing an understanding of relevant credit skills, learners take the next step in the blended learning process by joining a group of peers for a live learning experience. Omega’s Skills Application Labs (SALs) are dynamic, highly interactive instructor-led training events where students learn from each other’s backgrounds, knowledge and experiences and become partners in learning. Built around real-world case studies that describe complicated business scenarios, attendees must make a number of critical business decisions – at times without 100% of the information available. SALs evolved from traditional, uninspiring lecture-based workshops.
SALs evolved from traditional lecture-based workshops into collaborative environments that accelerate and deepen learning in less time. Learn more about Skills Application Labs.
