About ICCIE

The International Center for Captive Insurance Education (ICCIE, pronounced I See) was conceived by the Vermont Captive Insurance Association (VCIA) in 2001.

The members and leadership of the organization, through extensive conversation and research, determined that the growth and quality of the captive insurance industry could not be sustained without the development of a pool of qualified captive insurance professionals. The formation of ICCIE, a comprehensive education program for participants in the captive industry, was a response to this challenge.

During a two year period, VCIA invested in a market and feasibility study, the development of a business plan and ultimately a fundraising campaign to jumpstart the program. ICCIE was incorporated in the summer of 2003 and, in January of 2004, received its 501(c)(3) determination from the IRS.

ICCIE is now governed by an independent board of directors, while Executive Director Mitch Cantor attends to the day to day operations. The program and curriculum have been developed in collaboration with the University of Vermont (UVM) and reflect the highest standards of a top-tier educational institution. The program structure and course content have been vetted through UVM staff, ICCIE’s governing board, and an advisory board of captive insurance professionals and educators.
