The 2013 National Polygraph Association annual training conference was a huge success!
The NPA had a very high turnout of members attending, had a lot of vendor representation and had several polygraph school directors in attendance.
Michael Woodrow, Professor and Detective Sergeant, entertained the membership with his excellent presentation, covering things like public perception and the need to be pro-active in our public relations in the polygraph profession.
I was able to present a class on Using Interpreters in polygraph testing and how the Directed Lie Technique lends itself more easily to the use of interpreters than does the Probable Lie Technique.
Polygraph school director Ben Blalock presented on the Directed Lie Screening Technique (DLST) in preemployment and PCSOT testing. Also featured was an excellent overview of the Empirical Scoring System (ESS). This class was very interactive and everyone had a lot of questions, making it an unqualified success.
We had the most new members join our organization in 2012 than in any previous year and we want to continue that trend and break the record again in 2013.
Please inform all of the examiners you know that the NPA represents a true value for the training dollar spent.
