Big Changes at the International Center for Captive Insurance Education

ICCIE Trained Organization 480x377
July 25, 2017

The Captive Career Center

The International Center for Captive Insurance Education (ICCIE) recently launched a new feature on their website: the Captive Career Center.

The Captive Career Center is an employment hub that offers opportunities to both employers with openings and those looking for a spot in the industry. With an interface that is both intuitive and comprehensive (with searchable fields), the center is free to both employers and position-seekers and is open to the public.

ACI Alumni Network (AAN) members receive a special benefit relative to the Captive Career Center—they will receive advance notice of job openings before positions are posted.

Recognition of ICCIE Trained Organizations

ICCIE recently announced a recognition for 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," 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.ICCIE Trained Organization

To qualify as an ICCIE Trained Organization, a firm must meet both of the following requirements.

  • At least 20 percent of the captive professionals in the organization must hold the Associate in Captive Insurance (ACI) designation in good standing.
  • At least 30 percent of the company's captive professionals must be ACIs, Certificate in Captive Insurance (CCI) holders, or currently enrolled in the ACI or CCI program.

The definition of a "captive professional" is someone who spends at least 20 percent of his or her time on captive insurance work and is either a licensed professional (e.g., attorney, accountant, actuary, insurance producer/agent, investment adviser/broker dealer, underwriter, etc.) or the 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 promote 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 it is an acknowledgement of commitment by the company to the captive profession and the educational achievement of its professional staff.

The ICCIE Fellow

For those in the captive world who have achieved the highest educational standards and who have also shown leadership and service to the captive industry, ICCIE recognizes such individuals with its highest level of recognition: the ICCIE Fellow.

The ICCIE Fellow designation is reserved for individuals who have attained the highest educational standard offered by ICCIE (the ACI, maintained in good standing) and who have also made a major contribution to the industry, which may take several forms.

Those who are interested in being recognized as an ICCIE Fellow should complete the application materials as directed and return it via mail or e-mail to the ICCIE office. A special ICCIE committee of captive insurance professionals will review ICCIE Fellow applicants on a periodic basis and determine who has qualified for the designation based on the description included in the application.
