Loss prevention professionals, as well as those who aspire to work in loss prevention in the United States and Canada, can apply for Vector Security Networks’ annual Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) scholarships now through March 31,2021.
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.
More than 284 scholarships totaling $283,795 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.
A total of 10 LPQ and 10 LPC scholarships will be awarded to U.S.-based professionals, while another five LPC scholarships will be awarded to those based in Canada.
“We are pleased to once again offer Vector Security Networks’ LPF scholarships,” said Gary Fraser, Vice President of Sales for 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.”
Anyone who is currently in the loss prevention industry or has an interest in a career in loss prevention, can apply for an LPQ scholarship. Those applying for the LPC scholarship must meet certain eligibility requirements. Details can be found at https://www.vectorsecurity.com/lpf-vs-scholarship.
