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.

ICCIE has fulfilled an ever-growing need in the insurance industry, as the knowledge and understanding of captives has proven to be a rare commodity. The ACI designation program is a comprehensive, well-structured educational opportunity which has left me with a wealth of knowledge in a broad range of captive topics. I highly recommend this program of study to individuals at all levels, in any capacity, who want to acquire the most thorough captive education available.

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.

The ACI program gives students an intensive overview of the different aspects of captive insurance, from investments to regulations to actuarial analysis and more. There is no other designation out there for the captive professional or individual wishing to expand their captive knowledge that offers this level of captive education with top notch industry professionals sharing their knowledge.”
