Loss prevention professionals, as well as those who aspire to work in loss prevention in the United States and Canada, can now apply for Vector Security Networks’ annual Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) scholarships through March 31.
The scholarships provide financial support to loss prevention professionals or hopefuls seeking to obtain LPQ and LPC certifications. Vector Security began awarding the scholarships in 2009 in support of career development and continuing education for professionals in this important and rapidly evolving industry.
A total of 327 scholarships valued at more than $323,500 have been awarded since the program began. The scholarships cover all course and examination fees for LPF’s Loss Prevention Qualified (LPQ) or Loss Prevention Certified (LPC) certifications.
This year, 10 LPQ and 10 LPC scholarships will be awarded to US-based professionals, while another five LPC scholarships will be awarded to those based in Canada.
“Vector Security Networks is pleased to continue our LPF scholarship program,” said Dave Fisher, LPC, president, Vector Security Networks. “As the security needs of multi-site businesses continue to evolve, it’s important for loss prevention professionals to stay current on industry trends and solutions. Continuing education and certification in this field will help them meet the challenges of their profession.”
As a member of the LPF Board, Fisher said he and the company are proud to support the LPF in advancing individual industry knowledge, developing careers, and elevating the profession.
