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 found the ICCIE courses very challenging and very useful. The depth of the students and faculty was outstanding and I highly recommend the program to anyone that desires to expand their knowledge of captives.

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 designation gives an overall knowledge of the reasons for establishing captives through to deriving ultimate benefit through sensible and conservative financial management and keen awareness of risk and ways to manage risk, focusing on exceptional results. It also provides a clear guide to accounting, business ethics, alternative risk financing methods – including reinsurance – and how to balance risk appetite through the commercial cycle. The ever increasing options being provided allow for either specialization on a particular area of captive management or to gain an overall macro view of the potential fiscal advantage to be gained.

I believe the best and most unique feature of the ICCIE designate program is the opportunity to collaborate on the course material with colleagues in the captive industry. This interactive approach to understanding captive insurance makes this an invaluable learning experience.

ICCIE courses are offered online via instructor-led webinars — combined with readings, homework assignments, and chatboard interaction done at the convenience of the student’s schedule. Each course is offered one or more times during the year. Each course includes a start and end date, followed by a testing period.
