UPDATED November 20th, 2020: Thank you for your interest in registering for a First Temperament Assessment. Unfortunately, at this time we are still not able to schedule assessments and final evaluations until restrictions are lifted. You are still welcome to register. We are excited to be able to begin to schedule assessments and final evaluations again, as soon as we are given the go ahead. Stay safe and well!

Once you submit the First Temperament Assessment Form below, you will be directed to the payment page to complete your request. Payment is $55 and can be made by credit card, e-transfer and Paypal. E-transfer details are on the payment page where you will be direted after clicking submit.

Cancellations within 72 hours of your scheduled assessment will require a charge of $35 to reschedule.
