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 instructors are some of the most knowledgeable (and well known) people in our industry.

The ICCIE program has earned its reputation for fulfilling the need for specialized education and training. ICCIE courses are taught by a full array of captive industry experts who have contributed to the success of the industry around the globe. For the seasoned captive insurance professional, ICCIE’s course offerings will serve to strengthen your knowledge base and ensure that you stay current with new topics. For anyone new to the captive industry seeking to obtain a well-rounded education in the discipline, ICCIE is highly recommended.”

The curriculum was exactly what I was looking for, and it provided me with all of the fundamentals that I needed. The instructors are very knowledgeable; the fellow student interaction was very positive and helpful; and the ICCIE staff was very supportive. I strongly encourage those working in the industry or those wanting to learn more about the industry to enroll in the ICCIE ACI designation program.

The knowledge gained from the ICCIE, along with the interaction with other practicing professionals around the world created an invaluable opportunity that has enhanced my reach in my current career. Additionally, the excellent facilitators coupled with the vast knowledge base of individuals allowed for thought-provoking and interactive learning which is a highly recommended starting point for anyone interested in gaining a wealth of knowledge on the intricacies of Captive Insurance.
