“My experience within this program taught me a lot regarding different LP procedures and allowed me to see how extensive the field of loss prevention is. I had prior experience working in the fraud department at Fifth Third Bank, but what I learned while gaining my certification is unmatched. I was able to learn about the different LP jobs and their duties as well as how the loss prevention and asset protection department as a whole has evolved. I wouldn’t hesitate to share with others the opportunities taking this program provides.” – Kyrah Matthews, LPQ

“After twenty-five years in restaurant loss prevention, I am amazed at all the valuable information I gained from taking this course. Seeking to expand my knowledge, and with a desire to have a deeper understanding of loss prevention within different industries, the LPC course exceeded all expectations. Not only were the topics intriguing and comprehensive, but learning leadership and business principles added a holistic approach to loss prevention. I am looking forward to sharing my insights with my clients.” – Whitney Plemons, LPC, CFI

I have noticed that I am getting more respect in the field since I have taken this course.” – Will Simon, LPQ

“I wish I had taken the LPQualifed course within my first few months of gaining the loss prevention position I am currently in.

This training course definitely filled in some holes I had in my portfolio.” – Jake Burch, LPQ

“The LPCertified course was a well-thought-out collaboration of content that supports a loss prevention professional’s growth and future in the industry.
