The basic course of instruction is ten weeks of residence. Classes are generally held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with an hour lunch. The students receive extensive ‘hands on’ practice with all aspects of Polygraph required in the field of Polygraph science. Emphasis is on fundamental skills and application of polygraph knowledge. As it is the policy of APS to meet the needs of the Polygraph community, we also offer off-site ‘satellite’ courses worldwide.
