and Webinars

Add lie-detection to your existing business and you might find it becomes your main business!

Thursday December 12 2013 in the Los Angeles area

These 25 states have no polygraph license:
Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, DC, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,Washington, Washington DC, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Canada has no polygraph license either.

In the above states, you only need 2 things: knowledge, and the equipment. Polygraph is computerized via laptop since 1991, and all 4 brands of computerized polygraph will be discussed-- which to buy and which to avoid. Computerized polygraph equipment is occasionally available for sale used too.

You will leave with important handouts and possessing hands-on polygraph equipment experience. After the training basics, you will have been polygraphed, and you will have polygraph others. And included will be the topic NOT shared at other polygraph training sources: the BUSINESS of polygraph-- HOW TO GET THE WORK.

Most testing everyday nationwide is relationship: husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend, etc, thinking the other might be cheating. Then there is also theft amongst family members and roommates, employee theft, immigration/asylum, and other disputes. Polygraph clients pay in full in cash prior to you conducting the examination, AT FAR MORE DOLLARS PER HOUR THAN YOUR REGULAR PI WORK. 

It's easier than you might think, now that its computerized. You are comparing the body reactions at four points of their body as they answer a standardized 10-question script made up of three question-types. The client gets to write up to four questions, MOST of the rest are simple known-truth questions.

Last time this seminar was offered, members came from all over the US-- and some have good polygraph businesses today. This seminar is not available to PIs based in the counties surrounding Los Angeles, as we won't train our own competitors with our experience & secrets!

Did you know: in most major cities, you can not become a law-enforcement officer without passing a polygraph examination.

Unlike training that usually says this, with this it is true: seats are limited.

In the 1990s,
thePIgroup (
pioneered the use of online investigative
interactive training and 'webinars':
interactive training via the Internet
amongst the investigative professions.

Such interactive --and free-- round-table discussions
continue in 2014, different topics each month.

Some of these interactive forums continue for several days;
members have the choice to either
quietly observe or to jump in and participate.

Some are group participation and others are one-on-one.

Also available are our on-line texts that includes simulated practice license test
questions for the California Private Investigator, Private Patrol Operator PPO,
and Repossession Agency license examinations, as well as those for the private
investigator/detective licensing tests of many other states,
a simulator to a computer-testing as it advises the time limitations to answer each.
