Loss Prevention Academy Testimonials

I’ve just started as covert Loss Prevention 4 months ago. That is why I took the LP Detective course and recommend it to anyone who’s interested in becoming a store detective. I’m an ex-detective of criminal investigation and this course has answered all my questions.

- Lindsay L., Store Detective


I was a Retail Crime Officer my last two years as a Police Officer and worked in Retail as well. I would suggest anyone in or going into retail, to take the LP Detective Course from the Loss Prevention Academy, it's on the money.

- Sal L., Police Officer (retired)


I would like to thank you and “www.losspreventionacademy.com” for the great online, Wicklander-Zulawski (WZ) course. I really liked the course outline, the sound clarity was amazing and the speed was great.

- Makar A., Security Specialist, Dubai


I really enjoyed the WZ course for Loss Prevention. For me, one of the nice aspects was that you don’t have to dedicate 10 hours in one day for the training. It’s nice to be able to leave the course and when you return, it takes you right where you left off. It is very convenient and easy to use. Thanks for providing this training for me.

- Jim H., Asset Protection Manager


I spent 28 years in law enforcement before I retired. I am taking your courses for my retirement job. I am very impressed with your training programs.

-William D., Retired-Law Enforcement


I did enjoy the WZ course. I think that having the text read back made it easy to follow along with rather than sitting there reading it in silence. The video was a great way to see all the steps put into play. Overall, the course was put together very well and has me excited to execute what I've learned through the course.

-Michelle B., Asset Protection Manager


I really enjoyed the online WZ course for Loss Prevention! I already had my first interview with an admission so that was exciting...

-William H. Loss Prevention-Anchorage, Alaska


I took your Store Detective class and finished it. I wanted to say it was very beneficial to someone who has minimal knowledge and looking to pursue a career in Loss Prevention. I'm currently an Asset Protection Specialist. It is a one man store that requires teaching myself to prioritize between audits, surveillance and utilizing a team.

- Ben F.-AP Specialist


The courses were very informative and gave me a new insight along with a new profound knowledge of LP. I  made mental notes during review of this course, and have seen where I can bring about some improvements in my daily thoughts and operations. The WZ interviewing, was a relatively new area for me and I learned a lot during this course.

- Ricardo P. Inventory Control


I would highly recommend the courses found on the site to anyone interested in a career in Retail Loss Prevention. The courses incorporate easy to understand training modules that cater for everyone from Entry Level training to Management. Well done to Steven Degener for providing this innovative and unique training.

-Daniel N, Security Consultant


I just completed the online WZ course.  Thanks a million, the course was deadly!  Well worth the money :)

-Kerry H.


I decided to take a refresher course on Wicklander-Zulawski Interview and Interrogations techniques. Because of the time demands of my military profession, I was unable to attend an instructor-led class, so I looked for an alternate means of training.

Your Loss Prevention Academy provided exactly what I needed. The W-Z training was excellent; the online delivery method allowed me to learn the W-Z techniques at my own pace, to review areas as needed, and to challenge my understanding of topics at the end of each section.

I enjoyed the training so much, that I signed up for the Master Level Course, and I am confident that I will be prepared for a career in loss prevention.

-Lynn H.


Had a chance to utilize my WZ training this week. Thanks for allowing me to go through the online training. It's paid for itself last week and this. :)

-Jill M.


I don't know how to thank Loss Prevention Academy enough! With my minimal knowledge as a veteran coming out the service, and finishing the Store Detective Course has really made a difference in my candidacy for jobs! Recently was just offered a position at Saks 5th Avenue as the full time AP investigator! Thanks for providing an educational course and I recommend to anyone looking to pursue the Loss prevention field. From beginner to advance.
