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.

The captive industry was completely new to me when I graduated college. The ACI program was invaluable to establishing a solid foundation of captive knowledge, which I know will benefit me throughout my career. I highly recommend anyone who is new to the industry or just looking to refresh their knowledge surrounding the captive industry to enroll in the ACI program.

Several of our staff have gone through the program and several more are enrolled which we fully support as it helps us in developing the talent we need to service our growing portfolio of clients in various onshore and offshore domiciles. It’s also been interesting to see several of our clients that are new to captives take advantage of the program which is great because it makes our job easier when our clients understand the issues and ask the right questions”

The Certificate in Captive Insurance provides a tremendous foundation for professionals in the captive industry.  The teachers are top-notch and the content was timely, applicable, and substantive.  The e-classroom experience was captivating, and I’d highly recommend ICCIE to any and all in the captives field.

The ICCIE ACI & CCI programs provide a fantastic opportunity to learn from experienced captive professionals with recipients providing credibility and competitive advantages to their respective organizations.  I highly recommend agencies that are truly interested in participating in the captive industry enroll in an ICCIE program to demonstrate a commitment to the industry and bring credibility to your service offerings
