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 ACI designation is a great program. The information is thorough and up to date and provides a good mix of the technical and non-technical issues. Also, the teachers are industry experts in their field who are able to further explain the course material through real world examples.

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 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.
