What Should You Know When Choosing A Polygraph Examiner?

Before you choose a polygraph examiner or take a polygraph, there are some important questions you should ask!

  • Is the Examiner bonded or insured?
  • Does the polygraph service meet standards of the American Polygraph Association and ASTM?
  • Does the Examiner use quality control procedures?
  • Does the Examiner stay on top of the latest legal issues for testing under ADA and EPPA, if testing for an employer?
  • Is the examiner a Graduate from an APA accredited polygraph school?
  • Is the Examiner a member of the American Polygraph Association and/or their state polygraph association?

In many states,  LICENSING is not required. That means anyone can read a book on Polygraph, buy an instrument and call themselves an Examiner. There are no controls in those States as to who provides such services, so consumers beware.
