Terms and Conditions

The Certified Executor Advisor (CEA) designation is granted subject to your acceptance of the terms and conditions outlined below by the Institute of Certified Executor Advisors (ICEA). Your use of this site and the CEA designation signifies your agreement to abide by these Terms and Conditions. If you do not wish to adhere to these Terms and Conditions, you are not authorized to use the CEA Designation or access the CEA member's site.

Authorization to Use CEA Designation

To qualify for the use of the CEA designation, candidates must complete the CEA curriculum, pass the quizzes and examination, maintain active membership with the Institute of Certified Executor Advisors, fulfill the prescribed continuing education requirements mentioned below, and adhere to the ICEA Code of Conduct, also available on this site.

Continuing Education Obligations

ICEA mandates that CEAs complete 10 hours of continuing education (CE) each year, starting in their second year of membership, to ensure their knowledge remains current. This continuing education should focus on executor-related issues, estate planning, and any governmental legislative changes. Eligible activities include attending or teaching applicable educational sessions, reading relevant articles or watching videos, and/or attending relevant conferences. CEAs will be required to confirm the completion of these credits upon request.

Disciplinary Action

In the event of client complaints or any observed violations of these Terms and Conditions or the Code of Conduct, ICEA will investigate the matter and, if necessary, refer it to the disciplinary committee. This committee is responsible for conducting a thorough investigation with all parties involved and holds the authority to issue reprimands, suspensions, or membership terminations.


ICEA holds exclusive jurisdiction over all matters related to discipline and violations associated with your use of the CEA website members' areas and the CEA Designation. All legal matters regarding these issues fall under the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Florida. Please note that no waiver of any of these Terms and Conditions is valid unless provided in writing with the proper signed authorization from ICEA.


As a CEA, you commit to defending, indemnifying, and holding ICEA officers, directors, employees, agents, and suppliers harmless from any claims, actions, demands, and liabilities, including reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from any breach of these Terms and Conditions and the Code of Conduct.

Members-Only Authorization

Authorization for using terms such as "Certified Executor Advisor" or "CEA" and accessing the CEA members-only areas is strictly reserved for Certified Executor Advisor members in good standing with ICEA only.

No Warranty or Representation

As a CEA, you agree not to make any express or implied warranties beyond the scope of the information contained in the CEA course and/or curriculum.

Members and General Public Report of Misconduct

ICEA recognizes the importance of professional, ethical, and competent behavior by CEA members at all times. If you believe that the service received from a CEA member or the actions of a fellow CEA have been unprofessional, unethical, or incompetent, it is both your right and responsibility as a CEA to report it.
