Minimum Standards for Licensure as a Polygraph Examiner Trainee


(1) Age. A person must be at least 18 years of age to be licensed as polygraph examiner trainee.
(2) Citizenship. A person must be a citizen of the United States to be licensed as a polygraph examiner trainee.
(3) Training. Applicants for licensure as a polygraph examiner trainee must:
(a) Have graduated from a polygraph examiner’s course approved by the Department; or
(b) Provide documentation of military experience or training that the Department determines is substantially equivalent to the education required.
(4) Internship. Persons licensed as a polygraph examiner trainee must complete an internship. The Board prescribed internship requirements of any person who is licensed as a trainee are defined in OAR 259-020-0140 (Polygraph Examiner Trainee Internship).
(5) Professional Fitness. Applicants for licensure as a polygraph examiner trainee must not have demonstrated a course of behavior within the preceding 10 years which would indicate a high degree of probability that the applicant will be unlikely to perform the duties of a polygraph examiner in a manner that would serve the interests of the public.
(a) In order to determine if an applicant may have demonstrated a course of behavior, the Department will conduct a criminal records check.
(b) Any information obtained as a result of the application for licensure, the criminal records check, any Department investigation or other reliable sources that may indicate the applicant is unlikely to perform the duties of a polygraph examiner in a manner that would serve the interests of the public will be reviewed in accordance with OAR 259-020-0200 (Denial, Suspension or Revocation of Licensure).

(6)

The Department requires use of the applicant’s or polygraph examiner trainee’s legal name as the name of record for all Department purposes. The license issued to the polygraph examiner trainee will display the legal name. When a polygraph examiner trainee legally changes their name they must report the legal name change and provide a copy of proof of the name change to the Department through a Department-approved submission process within 30 days of the name change.
