Hello! I will be reviewing your question and posting a response momentarily; if you have any follow up questions please respond here. Thanks!
The court, or the class, is requiring the test?
Thank you for your patience; I have reviewed the penal code and could not find any authority for a court official or police officer to require a polygraph test. A third party agency cannot force a person to do so either. A person can voluntarily consent, but I could find no authority for a third party to force one on an individual.

You state they require it; they require it in order to issue a certificate of completion?
Since that's not a condition of parole, you can request a certificate, or a letter stating the course was completed but the test was not; if they refuse, the next step would be to have the probation officer contact them to confirm satisfaction of the course requirement. If the probation officer needs written proof and they still refuse, one would need to get a court order - injunction-ordering them to issue a certificate as to hours completed. One can request attorney fees and court costs and the court will award it if they find the company acted unreasonably in failing to provide the certificate.
