First Liberty Learning Academy, Hands-On Training Center, Opens in Norfolk, VA.

Liberty Military Housing (Liberty), acknowledged for its quality homes and vibrant neighborhoods, has announced the opening of the Liberty Learning Academy, its new, hands-on team member training center, in Norfolk.  

The 2,000 sq ft training center will provide in-person training to Liberty's 170+ employee-owners in the Mid-Atlantic. The center is equipped with classrooms and fully functional workstations, including three rehearsal kitchens and bathrooms, where team members will complete educational courses and gain hands-on experience working with household appliances and equipment that are found in Liberty's communities. Through training sessions at the Liberty Learning Academy, team members will be equipped to address concerns with HVAC units, plumbing, electricity, and other essential maintenance tasks. The Liberty Learning Academy in Norfolk is the first of many planned regional centers in Liberty's portfolio across the country. 

"The Liberty Learning Academy is closely aligned with our company's mission of providing military families with exemplary service and offering our employee-owners unparalleled opportunities for personal and professional development, "says Luis Lopez, Vice President of Training and Development for Liberty Military Housing. "The Liberty Learning Academy will allow us to create a safe, simulated work environment where our team members can develop essential skills that will improve their ability to diagnose, address, and repair issues that arise, which will, in turn, improve the living experience for military families living in our communities."   

On average, Liberty offers more than 150 training hours annually to each of its 1,500 employees through the EmpHour initiative, wherein team members are given uninterrupted time each week for training and professional development. The opening of this center will offer a total of 400 courses to various Liberty team members from enhanced leadership development, customer service practice, to process-driven courses, all designed to challenge the team members in a controlled environment before they enter the field.
