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.

From risk management to tax treatment, the ICCIE designation track covers it all. The designation is well worth the cost. I look forward to taking additional ICCIE courses relevant to my interests. I would recommend the program to anyone interested in captive insurance

“The success of the captive insurance industry is heavily dependent on the quality and expertise of all of its players. ICCIE does a tremendous job in providing access to timely relevant content
for developing new talent, keeping experienced talent abreast of new information and serving as a catalyst for innovative thinking by seasoned veterans. An added bonus is the role ICCIE plays
in supporting a spirit of community and camaraderie among captive insurance industry participants.”

The anticipation of the official email to be received today. After a long course of study, the achievement of my international designation in captive insurance is here! By far the greatest professional achievement at this moment. This program challenged me in so many ways, had me work harder than ever. Everyone at ICCIE is helpful. Angela Gale gave me strong words encouragement when I was ready to discontinue. My classmates were from all over the world which made the experience amazing. To have achieved this designation means so much to me
