The 10 weeks course will be accredited by the APA (American Polygraph Association).

Besides the satisfactory completion of all courses, the student must present a final paper and has to conduct at least 10 evaluations during the time after the course in order to demonstrate his (her) skill and knowledge.
Following the student's satisfactory completion of all course requirements, a diploma will be awarded attesting to the student's achievement.
During the following 6 months each student will have to report about the completion of 20 exams. The school will randomly choose 5 of them for inspection. Based on these results, a graduating diploma will be awarded.
After the end of the course, the student may also be given special counseling during the following year with no additional cost to the student or his institution.
Based on the rigorous nature of the training, some students may be unable to complete the minimum average required. Students will be allowed to repeat partial exams, stages of the training (internship for example) or the entire course if required. (The fee for this kind of additional training will be given based on the situation).
