Questions About Polygraph Testing
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.

Mrs. Jessica was very professional knowledgeable and straight to the point I wood recommend her to anyone who wants to know the real truth.
I have nothing but the highest praise for Jessica Freda and Certified Polygraph Associates. Let’s start by saying that most of us don’t expect to wake up one day and ask, “Boy, where can I find a good and honest polygrapher?” But guess what? One day I did–and I’m so glad that I called Jessica. I won’t go into the details of my particular case, but Jessica spent about 45 minutes on the phone with me explaining the entire process, from what to expect the minute someone met with her to how the test actually worked. She fielded about a gazillion questions with patience and understanding. She also told me to do my due diligence. So I did. I called the American Polygraph Association and the National Polygraph Association. They confirmed she was an active member in good standing. The APA also told me that in order to become a member, Jessica must have completed training with them. To maintain her APA membership, she also must keep up-to-date with the association’s standards. I even went as far as calling one of her clients–just to make sure she was legit. As I was doing all of this, I kept in touch with Jessica by text, asking her more questions. She was always prompt, courteous, and thorough. The actual day of the test went smoothly. Jessica made sure all the questions were crafted perfectly and that no stone was left unturned. The result? More than I could have asked for. Jessica is a true professional who has integrity. She’s in this business for the right reasons: to help uncover the truth.
