Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MUCH DOES A POLYGRAPH TEST COST?
The costs are contingent upon the mitigating factors of your circumstances: e.g., location where the test is administered, the number of people that need to be tested, and the issue being covered with the examination. For a free consultation and estimate, contact CPA.
Certified Polygraph Associates accepts cash or credit card payments. Test results will be withheld, however, until your payment is fully processed. Credit/debit card payments take 48 hours to process.
If you so desire, pre-payment for your polygraph appointment will result in the provision of immediate test results. However, pre-payments will not be refunded if given less than 48 hours notice of cancellation of appointment. With proper 48 hour notice, a full refund will be issued. Please read our complete cancellation policy below.
WHAT IS CERTIFIED POLYGRAPH ASSOCIATES’ CANCELLATION POLICY?
Certified Polygraph Associates has a 24 HOUR CANCELLATION/ RESCHEDULING POLICY. If your appointment is cancelled or needs to be rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged for the full price of the appointment.
If you are a NO SHOW or ARE NOT AT THE AGREED UPON LOCATION, AT THE AGREED UPON TIME, WHEN THE EXAMINER ARRIVES, you will be charged the FULL COST of your appointment.
This policy is place out of respect for our clients and our examiners. Cancellation of appointment with less than 24 hours notice are difficult to fill. By giving last minute notice, or no notice at all, you prevent someone else from being able to schedule into that time slot.
Upon the agreement of scheduling an appointment, you are left with the understanding that what you are purchasing is a time slot in an examiners schedule. If the person who is scheduled to take the test, refuses at the time of the appointment, you are still responsible for the full payment of the appointment time slot.

HOW ACCURATE IS A POLYGRAPH TEST?
Polygraph equipment is proven to be 98.3% accurate. A significantly higher rate than most scientific testing.
I was in a tough situation where a partner in a long term relationship ended the relationship and greatly desired evidence of infidelity to try and use in the divorce. She contacted every friend and family member I had and convinced them I had been unfaithful on rumors and conjecture trying to get information out of them/me. I explained the situation to Jessica who was very professional in creating a test to validate that I had been faithful and allow me to clear my name without getting into he said/she said antics.
My restaurant was missing deposits. I believed it to be an inside job since no one other than employees knew where they were kept. I trusted my staff but clearly one of them had broken that trust. I didn't know where to begin. I called Certified Polygraph Associates, and Ms. Jessica Freda came and administered polygraph test on all my employees that had access to the missing deposits. After her interviews and examinations, we found the employee responsible. Ms. Freda actually got him to confess and apologize! I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. The employee was subsequently fired and replaced. I couldn't thank you enough for help.
My significant other thought I was cheating and that simply wasn't the case. I was determined to prove my innocence. I found Certified Polygraph Associate's website and an amazing woman, Jessica Freda. Not only was she kind and understanding to my needs, but also completely unbiased. She did not judge my situation, nor did she act as if I was guilty. Jessica goes beyond building rapport. You can tell her passion is seeking out the truth. I could not speak highly enough about her. I am forever grateful to her for making the entire process as pain free as possible and giving me my relationship back. If you need a guiding hand through a very difficult time, Jessica is the woman to see.
