Online Degree Programs in Security & Loss Prevention

Today it's a lot more than the gun-toting intimidating guy standing in the bank lobby; security has picked up it's share of technology like most professions. As a result, much work may be done online. If you are considering a career in security and loss prevention, there is good news. According to a 2006 publication by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of security guards will grow 17% by the year 2016. Furthermore, the occupation will expand by 175,00 new jobs. If you are interested in gaming surveillance, the news is even better. During the same time period, the BLS predicts the field to grow by a whopping 34%.

So what kind of training is involved if you want a career in security or loss prevention? A high school diploma is enough for most entry level jobs. But certificates or undergraduate college degrees in a criminal justice discipline help candidates qualify for higher-paying jobs and move up into managerial positions, where the BLS reports fierce competition. This is one field where additional career training can really pay off.
