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.

I’ve been in several segments of the insurance industry over the years. I always look to educate myself in that industry segment and obtain the most pertinent designation. The ICCIE program was the most focused and easiest to utilize of all that I have used. Add to that the knowledgeable instructors, the helpful staff, and the quality interactions with other students, it is the best. I now have the knowledge base to be successful in the captive world.

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.

Challenging yet exciting’ defines my experience of the ACI program. The Harry House scholarship came as a pleasant surprise in August 2008. The start was a bit bumpy; I sailed through due to guidance and support from ICCIE.

The ICCIE – ACI designation program far exceeded my expectations. I recommend that if you work in the Captive Industry or Alternative Risk Market you should consider enrolling in the courses or better still the entire ACI program, it would be worth your while. It has given me a greater insight into the Captive Industry.
