The Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is a training programme started in 2012 by the Asatizah Recognition Board (ARB) to enhance the professionalism and to inculcate a culture of continuous learning and development of asatizah under the Asatizah Recognition Scheme (ARS). Asatizah are required to attend CPE programmes as a pre-requisite for renewal of ARS accreditation. Muis works closely with partners such as Pergas to offer a wide range of religious content and skill courses to enable asatizah to confidently play their role in building an inclusive nation.
A CPE Review was initiated in 2020 to review and refresh the programme. The CPE Panel consisting of ARB members and Muis senior officers was appointed to oversee the development of CPE which includes:
i. Providing overall direction for the CPE framework including the CPE Review
ii. Ensuring consistency across all training programmes and pathways vis-a-vis the training framework and curriculum
iii. Reviewing and approving training programmes provided in-house or by external providers
