This may have been answered on this blog already, but I couldn’t really seem to find an answer. I’m just curious how the process for the polygraph works. I understand the polygraph is based off your SF-86, but does the examiner go over the questions to be asked beforehand with you? I’m just thinking, what if a candidate has a question on a particular exam question or needs to explain something related to a particular question - can that be done in the middle of the exam?
For the record, I’m early in my application to one of the agencies and nowhere near taking the polygraph (assuming I make it that far), but the polygraph is what I’m most nervous about throughout the application process (again, assuming I make it that far).
Any insights would be much appreciated - thank you!
