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.

I enjoyed the ACI Program.  Any advisor working in the captive insurance space, would benefit from the ICCIE courses.  The instructors are highly regarded in their field of study and the courses provide an in depth review of all things captive!

For our captive industry that we love at this stage of our history, that idea surfaces in ICCIE and the stamp of approval from your peers is the ACI designation. I encourage you to pursue the ACI designation as a key ingredient of your professional growth in our special captive insurance professional industry.

As an investment advisor, captive insurance is a niche market and I have learned that you have to be able to speak and understand the language. I would not have been able to accomplish that without participating in this program. It is a very structured, detailed overview of captive insurance taught by long-standing captive veterans.

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.
