Apply for training as a content assessor


For members of industry, several schemes exist that allow you to be able to assess unclassified films and games for advertising purposes (AAA), television series on DVD (ATSA), bonus material accompanying an already classified film (ACA) and some computer games (AACG). These schemes allow a saving on time and costs associated with classifying only these types of products.

Training is also provided for content providers who want to publish material online and meet the assessment requirements under Schedule 7 of the Broadcasting Services Act.
