EPA courses are divided into different teaching units, grouped into modules, containing videos, notes, readings, tasks, and supplementary material. Each teaching unit ends with a questionnaire evaluating the knowledge acquired. At all times you will be in contact with your tutor who will help you solve any questions that may arise.
The modality is e-learning, accessing the theoretical part of each course through our virtual classroom. The practice will be carried out with our ELP's, depending on the place of residence of the student. The beginning is open, you set the pace of the class and you will have a year to complement the theoretical phase.
EPA courses are related to forensic psychophysiology and analysis of testimony credibility. There are different levels of training, basic, advanced and master's degree that will allow students to learn all the tools and skills necessary to dedicate themselves professionally to the exciting world of polygraphy. Each course contains texts, videos, and complementary teaching material.
