New Online Captive Insurance Courses Offer CE and CPE Credit

Dallas, TX, June 24, 2015—A new Captive Insurance CE Learning Center, featuring online courses on captive insurance and related topics, is now open. Offered as a service of, the learning center’s first course is Captives as Risk Retention Mechanisms. In July a second course, Property and Casualty Reinsurance Fundamentals, will be included, and a third course, Captives as Risk Transfer Mechanisms, will be added in August.

The courses are presented using WebCE's continuing education technology and are backed by WebCE's award-winning customer service team. WebCE is the leading provider of online continuing education courses for the insurance industry.

All three courses are being filed for insurance continuing education (CE), Certified Public Accountants (CPA) continuing professional education (CPE), and Certified Financial Planner (CFP) continuing education (CE) credit in most states. You can check the course catalog in the Captive Insurance CE Learning Center to determine if credit is currently available in your state (and monitor for later approval if not).

The two captive courses are based on concepts covered in the book Captives and the Management of Risk by respected captive expert Kathryn Westover.

"To my knowledge, there are no other sources of on-demand online continuing education focused on captives and the alternative market that also offer CE and CPE credit," said IRMI president and CEO Jack Gibson. "We are proud to offer these reasonably priced continuing education courses to the insurance, financial services, and risk management communities, and I hope they will provide a meaningful contribution to the knowledge and professionalism of risk professionals working in the captive insurance field."
