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.

Completing the program got me up to speed much quicker than independent study or on-the-job experience possibly could have done. I’m so pleased I made the decision to pursue my ACI designation and know that the knowledge gained will be invaluable to my career going forward.

One determination of an industry’s health is how well knowledge, wisdom, and insights are passed to the next generation. Going back to the concept discussions about ICCIE, I believed the captive industry needed an educational platform to assure its future success. ICCIE has met this challenge and will continue to serve the development needs of the captive industry.

I’m very thankful to have been given the opportunity to participate in the prestigious ACI Program. This designation has undoubtedly provided me with a level of captive education needed to best serve others in this complex and innovative industry.

I was provided the opportunity to participate in the ICCIE – ACI designation during 2022.  I found the combination of both instructor-led and self-paced course work to be well-balanced to ensure success with the program.  Further, the ICCIE online learning platform demonstrates a commitment to working professionals with an adequate timeframe to complete classes. The knowledge and skillsets provided through the completion of the designation allowed for a greater understanding of captive insurance dynamics that are applicable within the industry.  I highly recommend the ACI designation program.
