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.

As a Regulator supervising Captive Companies, the Associates in Captive Insurance (ACI) designation program was beneficial towards my daily regulatory supervision activities. The program gave me knowledge and an in depth understanding of how a Captive Company operates. The program is convenient and accessible to use; the lectures are professional and well organized. Having gained this designation will be beneficial to my career. I would recommend anyone in the Captive industry to take this course.

“The success of the captive insurance industry is heavily dependent on the quality and expertise of all of its players. ICCIE does a tremendous job in providing access to timely relevant content
for developing new talent, keeping experienced talent abreast of new information and serving as a catalyst for innovative thinking by seasoned veterans. An added bonus is the role ICCIE plays
in supporting a spirit of community and camaraderie among captive insurance industry participants.”

“The ACI programme provided a unique opportunity to learn in-depth from seasoned professionals within the captive insurance industry. It facilitated the enhancement of my knowledge of the inner workings of captives and of insurance in general.

The ICCIE program has provided a solid foundation and helped me understand that alternative risk transfer is an ever evolving concept with seemingly endless applications. As a result, career-long learning is a must and ICCIE is great place to start and continue your captive education.
