Welcome to the International Center for Captive Insurance Education

Several years in the making, ICCIE (pronounced “I SEE”) was developed in response to a need expressed by captive insurance professionals for in-depth educational offerings, information on current topics, and a professional designation.

Despite a strong pattern of expansion in captive insurance companies, research showed that there was a critical lack of education and training in the industry that, if not corrected, could affect its continued growth and professionalism. ICCIE’s mission is to be the premier provider of captive insurance education and to offer the preeminent professional designation in captive insurance.

ICCIE and the teachers from the industry are very accommodating, but the real bonus was the networking opportunities with my fellow cohort students from around the world.

The ACI designation carries with it a great deal of sway within the industry and it is the training path that I use for Beecher Carlson’s captive management leadership group.

The ACI designation program allowed me to enhance my understanding of accounting for captives within my current role and provided me a better understanding of the intricacies of the captive insurance industry throughout the areas that I do not have direct experience. I believe the designation and continuing CPE courses will be an asset to me as I continue to develop within the industry.

“The value that ICCIE brings to captive industry education can’t be overstated.  The ACI curriculum is comprehensive and exposes students to all aspects of the business.  The instructors are top industry professionals who are not only knowledgeable but able to present the material from a practical perspective.  Whether new to the industry or a seasoned professional a graduate of the ACI program is firmly prepared to move forward.”

Each course is offered one or more times during the year. Each course includes a start and end date, followed by a testing period.
