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.

The Associate in Captive Insurance designation program is a stand-out for those considering a career in captive insurance. The professors are talented, committed and genuinely caring; their lent for sharing their expertise and experience in unmatched in the industry. The support of the program staff, great online classroom setting, and the many other unique benefits all streamlined the educational process.

USA Risk Group encourages all staff to enroll in ICCIE classes. When hiring, we find one of the biggest hurdles is understanding insurance. We can find accountants, but accountants with insurance expertise are harder to come by. The ACI program helps our employees understand captive insurance programs, rather than just the pure accounting aspects. This in turn improves the services we are able to provide to our clients.

“Not having come from an insurance background, the curriculum for the ACI designation provided an excellent foundation on which to build my knowledge of captives and my experience within the insurance industry as a whole.  The curriculum is very comprehensive and I appreciated the experience the instructors brought to the class.”

The technical skills gathered during the course are easily applied to the captive insurance industry.  The up-to-date conversations and class interaction with colleagues make this certification an important step for those interested in understanding and keeping up with a fast changing industry.
