The International Center for Captive Insurance Education (ICCIE) recognizes firms that have committed to educating their employees through ICCIE or hiring ICCIE educated professionals. Such firms will be certified by ICCIE as “ICCIE Trained Organizations” and will be recognized on ICCIE’s website and – at the company’s election – may display the certification on the company’s website and marketing materials.
To qualify as an ICCIE Trained Organization, a firm must meet the following requirements:
- At least 20% of the captive professionals in the organization must hold the Associate in Captive Insurance (ACI) in good standing; and
- At least 30% of the company’s captive professionals must be ACIs, Certificate in Captive Insurance (CCI) holders, or currently enrolled in either the ACI or CCI program.
The definition of a “captive professional” is someone who spends at least 20% of his or her time on captive insurance work and is either a licensed professional (attorney, accountant, actuary, insurance producer/agent, investment adviser/broker dealer, underwriter, etc.) or an equivalent to such a position. It would also apply to any person who has more than a de minimis ownership stake in the organization or is paid by the organization to serve as an officer or director of a captive.
It does not apply to individuals whose work is purely administrative.
A company interested in securing recognition as an ICCIE Trained Organization may apply via the application form on the ICCIE website. There is no fee for applying as an ICCIE Trained Organization or for receiving or maintaining such recognition.
The granting, or rescinding, of the ICCIE Trained Organization recognition is solely at the discretion of ICCIE, and will be based upon the information provided by applying organizations and ICCIE’s records of its matriculants. No company may use or advertise itself as an ICCIE Trained Organization without ICCIE’s express written permission.
ICCIE’s recognition of a company as an ICCIE Trained Organization is not a legal representation of the efficacy or validity of a company as a captive services provider, but is an acknowledgement of commitment by the company to the captive profession and the educational achievement of its professional staff.
Based on the information provided above, and its own records, the ICCIE office will determine an organization’s ability to use the ICCIE Trained Organization label. ICCIE may require additional information from the above-named contact in order to make a determination on eligibility.
No company or organization may use the ICCIE Trained Organization recognition and/or logo without the express permission of ICCIE.
