The Loss Prevention Foundation

The Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) is an international leader in educating and certifying retail loss prevention and asset protection professionals. LPF’s mission is to advance the retail loss prevention and asset protection profession by providing relevant, convenient and challenging educational resources. LPF is responsible for administering the retail industry’s only internationally sanctioned certifications: LPQualified (LPQ) and LPCertified (LPC). It’s accompanying accredited prep-courses (LPQ, LPC), and proctored exams are focused at measuring individual industry knowledge and elevating the professional image of the industry. With LPF’s 24/7 online educational resources and professional membership program, LPF is able to educate the industry like no other organization of its kind, in the world. Founded in 2006, and governed under the leadership of a 31 member board of directors, consisting of 31 vice presidents & directors, LPF is the only 501 (c) 6, not for profit organization of its kind, exclusively recognized by and dedicated to the retail loss prevention and asset protection industry. The Loss Prevention Foundation’s retail focus is set by a board of directors, composed of LP individuals, who largely hold senior level positions at retail companies or in companies that serve the retail sector. Unlike bigger trade associations, whose boards are composed of retail CEOs, the Loss Prevention Foundation is exclusively created to serve the education needs of the retail LP/AP profession. In addition, LPF is focused on driving more talent to the loss prevention and asset protection industry from colleges, universities, military and law enforcement.
