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 pre-eminent professional designation in captive insurance.

The knowledge gained from the ICCIE, along with the interaction with other practicing professionals around the world created an invaluable opportunity that has enhanced my reach in my current career. Additionally, the excellent facilitators coupled with the vast knowledge base of individuals allowed for thought-provoking and interactive learning which is a highly recommended starting point for anyone interested in gaining a wealth of knowledge on the intricacies of Captive Insurance.

With the establishment of a newly revised Tennessee captive statute in 2011, it was clear that having qualified regulatory personnel was critical to our success as a domicile of choice. As a result, every new examiner, analyst or attorney supporting the Captive Section is required to obtain their ACI designation from ICCIE. This requirement so significantly improved the strength of the Captive Section that the examination of captives can be performed within the Section…allowing us to pass substantial contract examination cost savings along to captive owners.

The ACI designation through ICCIE is a wonderful program. The instructors for the core and elective classes are industry experts in their fields ranging from accounting, tax, actuarial science, insurance, and legal work. The course content matter is engaging and challenges you to think outside of the box. ICCIE provides a depth of resources that I have often referred back to in my daily tasks of managing captive programs.
