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.

“I found the LPC course to be a refreshing departure from the expected loss prevention focused content. Instead, I found the curriculum to be more retail centric in a way that shows loss prevention professionals how their expertise can be applied to the business more holistically. The LPC is more about becoming a leader that can communicate effectively and with understanding across the operation than it is honing traditional loss prevention knowledge.”

Mark GaudetteMark Gaudette, CPP, CFI, LPC, Director of Loss Prevention at Big Y Foods

“The LPC certification is right on target in addressing the body of knowledge needed in our industry. This course is well developed and is a value for Loss Prevention Professional at all levels. Whether the new Loss Prevention specialist or the seasoned veteran, the course work offers industry specific information that is needed to be successful in today’s Loss Prevention arena. The LPC course is a must for all Loss Prevention management teams.”

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?
