If you could offer one key takeaway to someone currently considering getting certified, what would it be? When you obtain your LPC certification, you not only demonstrate your level of knowledge and competency in the retail LP industry to your peers and your employers, but also show that you are committed to advancing your own career through ongoing education. How would you compare the foundation certifications to other educational courses that you've taken? There is no comparison. With both the LPQ and LPC certifications, I greatly improved my on-the-job knowledge. Also, the certifications force me to continue with my learning, so I can stay current in the retail industry and be a better LP professional. How has certification changed your expectations of loss prevention as a career, for yourself and for others? Having this certification will afford me more opportunities to be promoted in the LP field over those without it. In addition for me personally, I often questioned whether I really needed the LPC certification. After completing this course, I now know this was the correct decision. By having my LPC designation, my peers now know that I have stepped up my game to another level. Would you recommend certification to others? I would absolutely say if someone is serious about their own growth, the LPC designation would be a great investment. This certification will not only provide you the confidence you'll need moving forward but also let others know, especially in the LP industry, that you are serious about making their companies profitable by reducing their losses. This course is not cheap. But the experience and knowledge you gain from the material and passing the exam is priceless! I would highly recommend this course to everyone in the retail LP profession.
