Hiring the best polygraph examiners is crucial to delivering accurate and reliable results. At our organization, we take this responsibility seriously, employing a meticulous vetting process to ensure we work only with the most qualified and professional examiners. Here’s how we ensure our polygraph examiners meet the highest standards:

1. Comprehensive Background Check

The first step in our vetting process is conducting a thorough background check. This includes:

  • Criminal Records: We verify that potential examiners have no criminal history that could compromise their integrity or the trust placed in them by clients.
  • Professional History: We review their employment history to ensure they have a stable and reputable background in the polygraph field or related disciplines.

2. Certification and Training Verification

We require all our examiners to have certification from recognized polygraph training institutions. This includes:

  • Accredited Programs: We only accept certifications from institutions accredited by the American Polygraph Association (APA) or other globally recognized bodies.
  • Continuing Education: We ensure our examiners participate in ongoing education and training to stay current with the latest techniques and technologies in polygraphy.

3. Professional Experience

Experience is a critical factor in ensuring the reliability of polygraph examinations. We assess:

  • Years of Practice: We prefer examiners with several years of practical experience.
  • Case Diversity: We look for examiners who have handled a wide range of cases, from criminal investigations to pre-employment screenings, ensuring they have the versatility needed to handle any situation.

4. Ethical Standards and Professional Conduct

Integrity and professionalism are non-negotiable in our field. Our vetting includes:

  • Code of Ethics: We verify that each examiner adheres to the APA’s Code of Ethics or equivalent standards.
  • Reputation Check: We seek feedback from previous employers and clients to ensure the examiner has a history of ethical behavior and professional conduct.

5. Practical Skill Assessment

To ensure our examiners are not only theoretically sound but also practically adept, we conduct:

  • Mock Examinations: We have candidates perform mock polygraph tests to assess their practical skills and techniques.
  • Observation: Our senior examiners observe the candidates during these mock tests to evaluate their proficiency and demeanor.

6. Interview and Personal Evaluation

The final step involves a personal interview to assess:

  • Communication Skills: Effective communication is crucial for explaining procedures and results to clients.
  • Analytical Skills: We evaluate their ability to analyze results accurately and make sound judgments.
  • Professional Demeanor: We look for candidates who demonstrate professionalism and can maintain calm under pressure.

7. Peer Review and Feedback

We incorporate a peer review system where current examiners evaluate new candidates. This includes:

  • Peer Interviews: Current examiners interview potential hires to assess their fit within the team and their adherence to best practices.
  • Feedback Loop: Continuous feedback from peers ensures that all examiners maintain high standards and are open to constructive criticism.

8. Technological Proficiency

In today’s digital age, proficiency with the latest polygraph technology is essential. We ensure our examiners are:

  • Technologically Updated: Familiar with the latest polygraph equipment and software.
  • Tech-Savvy: Able to troubleshoot and adapt to new technological advancements in the field.

9. Continuous Performance Monitoring

Our commitment to quality doesn’t end at hiring. We have a robust system for continuous performance monitoring:

  • Regular Audits: Periodic audits of examiners’ work ensure ongoing compliance with our standards.
  • Client Feedback: Regularly collected client feedback helps us assess and improve examiner performance.

10. Legal and Regulatory Compliance

Adhering to legal and regulatory standards is crucial. We ensure:

  • Regulatory Knowledge: Examiners are well-versed in local, state, and federal regulations regarding polygraph testing.
  • Compliance Audits: Regular audits to ensure that all practices are compliant with the latest legal standards.


Our comprehensive vetting process ensures that we only hire the best polygraph examiners. By combining background checks, certification verification, experience assessment, ethical evaluations, practical skill tests, personal interviews, peer reviews, technological proficiency, continuous monitoring, and legal compliance, we guarantee that our examiners are equipped to provide the highest quality of service. This rigorous process not only upholds our standards but also ensures that our clients receive accurate, reliable, and professional polygraph examinations.
