Press Release- April 17, 2018

Here are some recent updates from ICCIE, the official education program of the captive insurance industry.


ICCIE Announces New CE Guidelines

ICCIE is delighted to announce some changes to our continuing education (CE) guidelines for graduates of our Associate in Captive Insurance (ACI) designation. The new schematic will make it more convenient and easier for ACIs to earn more credits while attending approved sessions at captive insurance conferences. In addition, a new payment option will allow for a one-time discounted payment on all the CE credits required per three-year renewal window. Here are the main points of the ACI CE guidelines:

  • ACIs need to complete 12 ICCIE-approved CE credits per three-year window post graduation (no change);
  • There is no longer a limit to CE credits earned from approved conference sessions (new) – previously, only 4 of the 12 credits per renewal window could be earned at conference sessions;
  • Seminars at conferences will have an administrative fee of $100 per webinar (new);
  • For ACI Alumni Network (AAN) members, all online webinars and live-at-conference CE sessions will cost $75 (new — reduced from $90);
  • AAN members can get a 50% discount off ONE course per year (new).
  • We now have a prepay subscription available (new): ACIs can prepay for their 12 credits in webinars and webcasts for $1,100 (non-refundable). This can be purchased at any time, and the credits may be used over more than one renewal window.
  • For AAN members purchasing the prepay subscription, annual dues would only be $50 per year (instead of $100) (new).

As always, our goal is to serve the captive industry with quality education at a reasonable price.  We look forward to hearing your feedback on the new CE changes.
