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.

The ICCIE program of study is informative, challenging and intellectually stimulating. I recommend this pursuit whether you are a seasoned professional in the traditional market place or just starting out in the captive environment. The instructors are first rate.

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 instructors are some of the most knowledgeable (and well known) people in our industry.

I found the ICCIE program on captive insurance to be very challenging and informative. I strongly believe it will be helpful to me in my law practice.

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.

Where, when and how are
the courses taught?

ICCIE offers students the opportunity to participate in its captive insurance education program as either designation candidates, certificate matriculants, ICCIE Fellow candidates or individual class (modular) students.
