In the sphere of instrumental lie-detection particular attention has always been paid to efficiency of the specialists who operate a computer appliance called “Polygraph”.


As you would never trust your health to a self-educated doctor, so you would never rely on testing and findings carried by a person who has read, heard, discussed and tried a lot but has never done appropriate training in instrumental lie-detection.


The most expensive and brand new polygraph is unable to make up the lack of specifics awareness and interpretation skills in polygraph examination even by 10%. You ought to keep in mind that the conclusion about the information reliability is compiled by a polygraph examiner, never by a computer.

Nowadays, many of training providers in Ukraine overcharge for training due to high demand in polygraph examination specialists. Just the opposite, we maintain qualified specialists training for a reasonable mid-market fee.
