Although many areas of crime are down in Canada, theft by employees and customers has revved up in recent years, to the tune of tens of billions of dollars. The CBC estimated that each household in the country pays $200 in hidden costs each year as a result of theft. With a languishing economy and higher prices, now is the time to get serious about shoplifting and employee theft — LSTI’s loss prevention course can help.
At LSTI, our instructors work within the security industry and can offer insightful advice and recommendations that you can use in your corporate training program, security company or in-house security department. We also recommend enrolling your employees so they can take advantage of acquired skills, such as effective interviewing, report writing techniques, as well as personal protection measures.
Loss prevention is essentially a highly organized, reasonable and precise methodology that seeks to isolate a business’ exposure to theft and other losses. This is done through planning and actions that prevent loss before a theft can occur, rather than reacting to a loss after the fact. At LSTI, we provide students with comprehensive training to help them grasp the conceptual knowledge and practical skills needed to prevent or minimize theft at the many retail outlets affected by shoplifting and employee theft in the Lower Mainland.
The topics of this course include:
During the four-day course, you will be tested, and upon successful completion of the written and practical testing portion of the course, you will be issued a Loss Prevention Security Certificate. The course we offer is taught by very knowledgeable, professionally renowned instructors who have first-hand experience in the loss prevention field. Instruction is supplemented by former and/or retired professionals from the police forces.
Your Loss Prevention Security Certification, along with your BST certification, will allow you to enter sectors of the security services that require a more in-depth knowledge and skill set. While this course is optional, it may be a prerequisite to obtaining top-notch positions in private and in-house loss prevention security teams. Certification can help you to excel as a loss prevention specialist.
These courses can either be taught at your place of business or at our Vancouver facility. Courses we have offered in the past include:
