“After administering over 35,000 polygraph tests I still believe that the Backster School was the best and most formative school that any polygraph examiner could attend. Research conducted today still reflects on teaching and research that was done by Cleve Backster. Other examiners in our firm who attended the Backster School keep their basic course notes available to them at an arm’s reach and still do refer to their course notes whenever they have a question.” – Peter G. Pierangeli, PGP Polygraph
