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 ICCIE-ACI curriculum is well rounded and provides a good framework for learning the aspects of captives and the captive industry. Additionally, the materials used and provided throughout the courses … will also likely add to your resource library.

Several of our staff have gone through the program and several more are enrolled which we fully support as it helps us in developing the talent we need to service our growing portfolio of clients in various onshore and offshore domiciles. It’s also been interesting to see several of our clients that are new to captives take advantage of the program which is great because it makes our job easier when our clients understand the issues and ask the right questions”

For me, the whole program was beyond informative, though very challenging, at times. The value I received was incredible. I feel accomplished and proud. I am more confident at my work, networking in the industry, and in all insurance and captive matters. And, for that, I thank you, ICCIE!

ICCIE has fulfilled an ever-growing need in the insurance industry, as the knowledge and understanding of captives has proven to be a rare commodity. The ACI designation program is a comprehensive, well-structured educational opportunity which has left me with a wealth of knowledge in a broad range of captive topics. I highly recommend this program of study to individuals at all levels, in any capacity, who want to acquire the most thorough captive education available.
