Successfully completed industry training courses can enable applicants to streamline classification costs in several ways:

Advertising of Films and Computer Games

After successfully completing a training course, people can be authorised by the Director of the Classification Board to assess the likely classification of unclassified Films and Computer Games, and this enables the product to be advertised without having to submit the material to formal certification by the Classification Board, which can save time and money.

Computer Games

Computer Games that are likely to be classified M or below can be assessed by an authorised assessor and a recommendation of the classification can be made to the Classification Board. These applications incur a lower fee.

Film (Additional Content) and Television Series applications

Applications for the classification of films under the Additional Content Assessment (ACA) and the Authorised Television Series Assessor (ATSA) schemes are more cost effective than applying for a standard classification.

These applications need to be accompanied by an assessment report prepared by a person who has attended training and has been authorised by the Director of the Classification Board.

Trained Content Assessor

TCA courses are available for anyone who develops, carries, or provides content for commercial content service providers under Schedule 7 of the Broadcasting Services Act 1992. The course will provide you with the skills to make an assessment of the likely classification of the content.
