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.

It is a very intense course providing overall knowledge of how to set up and operate captive insurance companies. It is the only captive designation program where you can learn from the “best of the best” in the captive insurance industry.

USA Risk Group encourages all staff to enroll in ICCIE classes. When hiring, we find one of the biggest hurdles is understanding insurance. We can find accountants, but accountants with insurance expertise are harder to come by. The ACI program helps our employees understand captive insurance programs, rather than just the pure accounting aspects. This in turn improves the services we are able to provide to our clients.

The ICCIE designation program is of great value. It is an excellent tool for in-depth education on captives and the insurance industry. Although I have been in the captive industry for more than six years, the ACI designation program was still an enormous help for me to understand working on a worldwide captive level. I will recommend this program for professionals at all experience levels.

Being new to the Captive Industry, the ACI curriculum gave me a good overview of Captive Insurance. The biggest positive of the course was that the ICCIE provided some of the most recognized names in captive insurance as lecturers and I got to interact with these lecturers via live online tutorials.
