About Us

 The Loss Prevention Academy is owned by LPDT, LLC, a company based in Northern California.  We are pleased to provide the only Loss Prevention training courses available on the internet. 

Our courses were written by Loss Prevention professionals with over 100 years of experience combined.   These courses go beyond what would be considered an e-book format as they include voice over, interactions, online reviews, followed by testing and immediate printing of a certificate of completion from the site.

We are pleased to partner with WZ to offer two courses on Investigative Interviewing skills for Loss Prevention and Human Resources/Employee Relations.  WZ has established themselves as the industry leader in training for these areas.

We are International.  The Loss Prevention Academy's courses apply to any Country world-wide.  In a short period of time, we have had trainees from India, Pakistan, U.K., Puerto Rico, Australia, Guam, Singapore, China, Denmark, Afghanistan, S. Korea, Egypt, Canada, Ireland, Congo, Libya, Russia, Nigeria, Malaysia, South Africa, Papua New Guinea, Dubai, Brazil, Belgium, and U.S. complete a course.  

To complement the training, we also offer awareness posters to “keep the message” in front of employees within the Store or Distribution Center.  Because the targeted audience ranges in age from 17-22 years old, we offer modern day communication themes for this age group to increase retention of the messages.  These designs are available worldwide.  We can design posters based on your logo, needs, wording and print them at industry low pricing.

And lastly, for now, we wanted to share our knowledge of Loss Prevention by developing a professional blog.  You can see it at https://losspreventionacademy.com/blog/.  There are over 50 articles written about Loss Prevention with additions on a regular basis.  We love guest blog articles, please reach out if interested in contributing.

We want to provide excellent customer service.  Our "normal" business hours are M-F from 8 to 5:30, Pacific time.  We are available after those hours and weekends as time permits.

 We are taking “Training for Loss Prevention to a Higher Level”
