    Yes, I suppose so.

    Seems like there's a lot of blatant commercialism in so many security publications, doesn't it? I don't mean the space devoted to legitimate ads, but the so-called "articles" that purport to be objective discussions but merely push "solutions" that, strangely enough, are products in which the author or his employer have a financial interest. And it's not just the mags. When I joined ASIS I had to buy a shredder just devoted to the constant stream of mail-outs that started to pour in, every one of which was selling something (usually, a high-priced seminar that I just couldn't afford to miss).

    I suffer from seminar fog as it is...that strange malady where you know you attended something in Dallas or Memphis or Bugtussle, but for the life of you, you can't remember much of anything about it except that the nonsmoking room you reserved smelled like a bar and they lost your bag on the flight home.

    ...as for the seminars where I was going to learn "something new and different I'd never heard about" and didn't hear anything new or different, well, we shall not speak of those....

    I've been watching this too. My thought is that a magazine seems to me to be somewhat of an unusual sponsor for certification, even if it is one of the leading publications in the field. Having worked with all kinds of certs in many fields, I can't think of any others sponsored by a magazine. Whether rightly or wrongly, this raises at least a slight question in my mind. However, I agree with you that it might prove to be a positive thing.

    RILA is Retail Industry Leaders Association, an arm of the National Retail Federation (NRF).

    The magazine has started the new certification. I'm not sure the retail loss prevention industry is ready for another certification, but have decided to remain on the positive side.

    First Question:
    Who is the Retail Leaders Association, and the first sponsor, which looks like a magazine called LOSS PREVENTION?

    Second Question:
    It says they're accredited. By whom?

    started a topic New Certification

    New Certification

    On another post there was talk of CPO & CPP and are somewhat well known. I have recently seen some new certification available this year for Loss Prevention. Anyone know more about it than that what we see in the web page?
