When I first started toward the ACI designation I was very new to the captive industry but had a strong desire to learn more and broaden my knowledge base. The ACI program has a great mix of courses, both required and optional, that allowed me to build the fundamental knowledge of the captive insurance industry. We joke that captive insurance is almost like a foreign language so the ACI program was huge in helping get the acronyms and meanings behind things down, as well as how everything fits together/ what everyone’s role entails (ie. brokers, service providers, regulators, etc.). What makes the ACI/ICCIE so awesome is that it is also taught by industry professionals, so you are learning from and building connections with the people that you work with and are peers in the industry.
