The Loss Prevention Foundation has recently announced the release of the latest version of the LPQualified (LPQ) course content, now available to anyone and everyone interested in the certification process.
To ensure this course remains most beneficial to the loss prevention/asset protection audience, the latest version of the course includes:
- Updated content to enhance the value and relevance of the material for today’s LP professional

The Loss Prevention Foundation’s LPQualified (LPQ) is a certification designed to provide a benchmark education for loss prevention managers, supervisors, store managers, college students, select hourly employees, and anyone interested in the career field. The course was created with input from more than 170 loss prevention leaders and subject matter experts from more than 75 of today’s leading retail companies.
To earn certification, you must pass the LPQ proctored exam (100 multiple-choice questions), offered at locations throughout the United States. While you are not required to purchase the LPQ course prior to taking the exam, it is the best study tool available.
The LPQ coursework is composed of three courses with 25 detailed chapters. The curriculum focuses on:
Course 1: The Retail Environment
Course 2: Becoming a Successful Business Person
Course 3: Loss Prevention Basics and Tools
Each module includes section review questions, practical applications, and a practice exam at the end of the course. The self-paced course is delivered 100 percent online. This educational program is a college-accredited course with the text supported by video demonstrations and hundreds of photos. The course also provides a study gopher that allows for note-taking, which can be printed as a study resource as the LPQ student prepares for the exam.
