For those students who are seeking a career in polygraph, you will find that our program will best prepare you for success. Each student must meet the following minimum requirements in order to attend our Basic Polygraph Examiner’s Course:
The Basic Examiner’s Course fee is $4,995.00 (USD) and is generally due prior to the beginning of the course of study unless other arrangements are made through the training center. The tuition fees include all course materials, supplies and use of equipment and polygraph instrumentation together with staff consultation while in attendance. This is a ten-week program.
The Basic Post-Conviction Sex Offender Training Forty-hour Certification Course fee is $600.00 (USD) and must be paid in full by the first day of class.
The fee for any Advanced Workshops is $150 per day per person attending.
If the course or workshop is cancelled for any reason, or if the student is unable to attend the course, any money received by the training center from the sponsoring entity will be refunded in full. If, however, a student is terminated, or if the student resigns during the course for any reason, a refund will be returned according to the following scale:
Percentage of Physical Attendance Completed Tuition Refunded
50% or less: 50% refunded
More than 50%: No refund will be given
During the Basic Polygraph Examiner’s Course, there will be a minimum of three written examinations in addition to a comprehensive final examination. Students shall achieve a minimum of a 70% or higher for each required examination. Additionally, numerous practical examinations shall be conducted (both diagnostic and screening) using proper methodology as taught at the training center. Various other assignments may also be required as determined by course instructors and/or director.
Any student who fails any written examination by not achieving at least a minimum of 70%, may be given one last opportunity to pass that written examination on a date and time agreed upon by both the student and the Director, or someone appointed by the Director. If the student fails this second opportunity, the student will be terminated.
Each student is expected to exercise professionalism throughout the course. Any acts of moral turpitude or dishonesty may result in suspension or dismissal from the course. Examples of such acts are criminal behavior, disruption, harassment, acts of threats or violence, cheating, theft, damage or destruction, and falsification of application.
Considering the rigorous nature of these courses, some students may be unable to complete it with their initial attempt and, for these students, on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the Director, readmission in a subsequent course may be available. In order for a previous student to be re-admitted into a course, the applicant must prepare a letter explaining the reason for re-admission, and detailing any corrective actions the applicant has taken in order to mitigate previous reasons for being dismissed from training.
In order for applicants or other interested persons to know how to submit complaints regarding the training program, we advise that you submit your complaint in writing, not less than 30 days from the date of the incident. The complaint shall be mailed to 1490 NE Pine Island Road, Unit 7B, Cape Coral, Florida 33909 and to the attention of PEAK Program Director.
