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.

Through the ACI program, I’ve gained a wealth of knowledge on current issues affecting the industry, and met some great people along the way.

With the establishment of a newly revised Tennessee captive statute in 2011, it was clear that having qualified regulatory personnel was critical to our success as a domicile of choice. As a result, every new examiner, analyst or attorney supporting the Captive Section is required to obtain their ACI designation from ICCIE. This requirement so significantly improved the strength of the Captive Section that the examination of captives can be performed within the Section…allowing us to pass substantial contract examination cost savings along to captive owners.

The designation gives an overall knowledge of the reasons for establishing captives through to deriving ultimate benefit through sensible and conservative financial management and keen awareness of risk and ways to manage risk, focusing on exceptional results. It also provides a clear guide to accounting, business ethics, alternative risk financing methods – including reinsurance – and how to balance risk appetite through the commercial cycle. The ever increasing options being provided allow for either specialization on a particular area of captive management or to gain an overall macro view of the potential fiscal advantage to be gained.

I’ve been in the insurance industry for 20 years, but new to captive world, thus the ICCIE/ACI program was a great way to
learn about the captive industry and also an opportunity to interact with other captive professionals, either because they
were instructors or fellow students. It is a great program.

Each course is offered one or more times during the year. Each course includes a start and end date, followed by a testing period.
