Loss prevention professionals as well as those who aspire to work in loss prevention in the United States and Canada can apply for Vector Security’s annual Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) scholarship program now through March 31, 2020.
The scholarships provide financial support to loss prevention professionals — or those who have an interest in loss prevention — seeking to obtain LPQ and LPC certifications. Vector Security began awarding the scholarships in 2009 in support of career development and continuing education for professionals in this important and rapidly growing industry.
More than 260 scholarships totaling $262,460 have been awarded since the program began. The scholarships cover all course and examination fees for retail loss prevention professionals who wish to obtain LPF’s Loss Prevention Qualified (LPQ) or Loss Prevention Certified (LPC) certifications.
A total of 10 LPQ and 10 LPC scholarships will be awarded to U.S.-based professionals, while another five LPC scholarships will be awarded to those based in Canada.
“We are proud to once again offer the Vector Security LPF scholarship program to LP professionals in the U.S. and Canada,” said Michael T. Grady, LPC, executive vice president, Vector Security Networks. “As the security needs of multi-site businesses continue to evolve, it’s important for LP professionals to stay current on industry trends and solutions. Continuing education and certification, such as LPQ and LPC, in this field will help LP professionals meet the challenges of their profession.”
Anyone who is currently in the loss prevention industry, or has an interest in a career in loss prevention, can apply for an LPQ scholarship. Those applying for the LPC scholarship must meet certain eligibility requirements. Details can be found at www.vectorsecurity.com/lpfscholarship.
