Professional excellence requires dedication and responsibility, and is something that the best continuously strive to achieve. In order to maximize potential, it is therefore essential that professional development is seen as an ongoing process. We should always be looking for ways to improve our skills, abilities, and base of knowledge as a means to maximize performance. Loss prevention certification is a means of establishing and validating that standard of excellence.

“As a business professional that specializes in Loss Prevention, I felt more of an accomplishment completing the LPC course than I did receiving my Masters degree in Criminology. The course is a challenge, but well worth the time. One should not take the LPC lightly, we should see it as a tool to further our education and our insight into the industry that we all call our profession. Every time another in our industry becomes LPC certified, we add relevance and credibility to our being. Thank you LPF for having the insight to design and create such a great educational tool for all of us to learn from and grow!”

The retail industry is extremely competitive, and loss prevention has become an integral component of a successful retail model. In order to remain successful our professional competencies must include flexibility, strong problem-solving and decision making skills, a superior knowledge base, and an ability to effectively apply our knowledge and experience to the diverse situations that we face on a day-to-day basis.

It is our responsibility to manage the process; driven by individual learning experiences and carrying a personal signature for success. Continuing education, training and skills development, lifelong learning activities, intellectual nourishment and exposure to new ideas all contribute to that plan.
