Program Requirements


We provide everything from pens and workbooks to PowerPoint® Presentation equipment and any attendant training materials. Each iteration of the program includes both classroom instruction and low-impact, physical skills development training. A ten-question written pre-test and final test are also administered, with all attendees remediated to 100% at the conclusion of the program. Each iteration is administered only by highly trained and certified members of the Saber Group Cadre.


No subcontractors, substitutes, or replacement personnel will be utilized at any time for any reason.

Each iteration of the program is administered in similar format and fashion, ensuring consistency in training for all attending personnel. Prior to administering the program, a completed lesson plan will be submitted to the appropriate Loss Prevention Manager or other designated person for approval. Any changes to the program will also be submitted for review and approval prior to being implemented.


Classes may be conducted during the week or on weekends, days or evening. We are always willing to adjust any aspect of the program to best fit the client’s needs.


Each member of the department who completes the training receives a personalized certificate suitable for framing. This certificate will verify that they received the specific training covered in the package program. A packet containing copies of the program attendance sheets, schedule, outline, critiques, written tests, and handouts are also provided to the Loss Prevention Divisional or Regional Manager. This packet should be kept on file with the department to document the training that was provided to its Loss Prevention personnel. Saber Group Inc. will also maintain a copy of all training records.


As with all Saber Group programs, we insure the client’s investment of time and money by providing a 100% money-back guarantee for this program. Simply stated, if you are not satisfied with the services we provide to your personnel, you don't pay. We can do this because we are that confident in the level and quality of training that we provide.
