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.

While completing the ACI designation, I had the opportunity to work with such a diverse and talented group of people, it was inevitable that this program would springboard my comprehension of captive insurance to the next level.

The ACI designation carries with it a great deal of sway within the industry and it is the training path that I use for Beecher Carlson’s captive management leadership group.

I chose the ACI program in order to enhance my existing knowledge of captive insurance and to provide me with a competitive edge in the marketplace. In the end, I feel as if the program provided with me so much more than that! I was able to take the fundamentals and apply them to my real world experience as a audit and tax professional. I believe the designation helped me make the change from auditor to captive manager in the Spring of 2013. The ACI program is top notch and I would recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about captives!

Achieving my ACI designation was important to my professional development. The interaction with course instructors, fellow students and of course, the ICCIE team was a great networking experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend the ACI courses to all captive professionals to ensure we all remain qualified to cater to the needs of our clients and the wider insurance industry.

ICCIE courses are offered online via instructor-led webinars — combined with readings, homework assignments, and chatboard interaction done at the convenience of the student’s schedule. Each course is offered one or more times during the year. Each course includes a start and end date, followed by a testing period.
