3-day basic course: 23-25 November 2021 – Beveren (town administrative center and local police office)
This year there will be no 2-day advanced course for those students who already followed the basic course. The advanced course will take place only in 2022.
The SCAN technique was developed by Mr. Avinoam Sapir, a polygraph examiner, with a background in the Israeli Police Department in Jerusalem. Mr. Sapir holds a Bachelors Degree in both Psychology
and Criminology, and a Masters Degree in Criminology. He developed the SCAN technique by conducting extensive research into verbal communication, looking into the linguistic behavior used by
people in communication.

SCAN is an innovative and effictive technique for obtaining information and detection of deception.
SCAN will show you:
Deze methode werd ontworpen door de psycholoog (BA), criminoloog (BA) en polygrafist Avinoam Sapir, die sinds 1984 SCAN doceert. Meer dan 35 jaar na de totstandkoming, wordt SCAN wereldwijd gehanteerd door zowel publieke, als private opsporingsautoriteiten. Het CPS organiseert sedert 20 jaar een jaarlijkse driedaagse SCAN-basiscursus en een tweejaarlijkse tweedaagse vervolgopleiding.
Anyone who needs to obtain information from interviews or investigations.
The SCAN technique is now being used by federal, law enforcement, and military agencies throughout the U.S., Canada and Australia; by bank and insurance investigators; by private industry; and by social service professionals, including rights officers and child protective service caseworkers.
The SCAN course will be of value to all individuals who deal with information, oral or written. The course will enable the participant to effectively obtain and evaluate information.
Professions which can benefit tremendously from this course include: interviewers, intelligence officers, investigators, personnel managers, social workers, psychologists, and executives.
SCAN is also being used in many other countries, including the U.K., Belgium, the Netherlands, Israel, Mexico, and South Africa.
