Registration

All ICCIE applicants – those registering for the designation program,certificate program and those registering for individual classes only – must have a minimum level of exposure to the captive or risk management industries to ensure an optimum class experience for all students.  ICCIE reserves the right to decline a student’s admission due to a lack of such experience or the equivalent educational background.  Any potential students with questions about whether they might not qualify for the program may contact Executive Director Mitch Cantor directly at the ICCIE office.

 

Reserving a Spot in a Course

After completion of the registration form and payment, a student will be able to reserve a place in any course or teleconference.

For a Modular student’s individual course or teleconference registration, the course fee must be paid in full before their spot can be reserved.

Designation students must pay the second half of their complete tuition 12 months after the date of the initial payment or upon completion of three ICCIE core or elective courses, whichever comes first.

ICCIE will be able to present documentation to organizations that will be reimbursing students for tuition.  Contact the ICCIE Office at 802-651-9050 if you have any questions about course documentation.

Canceling a Registration/Refunds

A designation student who withdraws from the program and has already paid the first half of the tuition ($2,300) will be refunded:

  1. A full refund, less administrative costs ($150), if no courses or teleconferences have been taken;
  2. A refund of $500, if the student has participated in one course;
  3. A refund of $1,875, if the student has participated in one teleconference;

  2. No refund, but the option to take the course, or any other course of equal or lesser value (within one year of payment date), provided the withdrawal is made 14 days or less prior to the start of the course.

ICCIE Course Cancellation

ICCIE reserves the right to cancel a course due to low enrollment.  Enrollment in another ICCIE course will be encouraged for those students who paid for the course.  Students who do not wish to take a different course may request a refund.

Administrative Fee of $200 will be paid:

  1. if the second installment of ICCIE’s tuition is not paid within a year of the first payment or prior to enrolling in a fourth course (whichever comes first);
  2. if all of the designation requirements are not completed within a three-year window;
  3. if all of the continuing education requirements are not completed within a three-year renewal window

The reinstatement fee has been observed since July 1, 2013.

Credit for an Already-Completed Course

Designation students who want to skip an elective course requirement may do so if they can provide documentation that they have successfully passed the exam for that course in the last FIVE years.  A credit of this type will not affect the amount of tuition to be paid.

“Testing Out” of a Course

Designation students who wish to take/retake the final exam for a course (in order to fulfill the requirement of taking the course) may do so for $125.  If the test is passed, this counts as the course completion for the ACI designation program.

Regardless of the outcome of the test, no refunds will be given after such a test has been taken.

ACI graduates do not have the option to “test out” of a course for continuing education (CE) credit.

 

“Testing Out” of the Program

Some individuals may be able to obtain the ACI designation because they have already taken some of the courses and wish to “test out” of the rest.  In such a case, the candidate must pass all the course tests (or show proof of having passed the test already), participate in three teleconferences, and complete a Work Project (see the description on the Designation Students website page).  Tuition for these students is $2,500, including testing and teleconference fees.

Maintaining the ACI Designation

To ensure that the ACI designation maintains a standard of excellence, graduates of the program
are asked to maintain their designation by completing continuing education requirements.
Students must complete a minimum of 12 credits every three years after receiving the ACI Designation.

ACI Designation Continuing Education Credits may be received through the following:

  1. Attending “hot topic” webinars through ICCIE or VCIA.  The two organizations will be offering a minimum of six such webinars each year.
  2. Completing any electives (including their respective post-course exams) listed below that you have not already taken as a part of your ACI designation.  These are courses offered through ICCIE, The Institutes and American Society for Health Care Risk Management (ASHRM).
  3. Documented attendance at approved sessions at captive conferences, limit 4 of 12 credits, per renewal period.

For the graduate to continue to use the designation, the requirement will remain in effect for each ensuing three-year period.

 

Time Limit on Courses Passed

Designation students can use toward their designation courses that have been completed in the past three (3) years.  Any courses passed more that three years previous may not be counted towards the ACI designation.
