Loss Prevention Foundation logo

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.

“This is a perfect way for a LP Professional to expand their knowledge which would lead to expanding their opportunities to grow. Many professional career fields have a certification process; this certification would put the LP professional on par with others and set the tone for professional growth as the industry continues to evolve.”



Eric RoblesEric Robles, LPC, Market Asset Protection Manager at Stage Stores

The LPCertified (LPC) course work is intense, very well put together, and will expand your current LP/AP knowledge. It is a great certification to have and trust me when I say that people in our field will know your dedication and commitment to your personal development after gaining this certification. However, do not underestimate this coursework and exam as it is quite difficult. If it was easy, then everyone in our field would have it!

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. Are you taking the necessary steps?
