This study aims to investigate whether there are alignments in the characteristics and indicators of the NCATE and Islamic Education Teachers’ program. It also examines the consensus of experts in the field of Islamic Education on whether the IET characteristics requested by NCATE standards can be embedded into the Islamic Teacher Preparation Program (ITPP) in Oman. Data were collected from 60 experts, specialists and scholars in a focus group whilst the data were analyzed using descriptive analysis and Delphi techniques in the first and second rounds of analysis. The study found that experts agreed that IET characteristics can be embedded into the ITPP in the College of Education at Sultan Qaboos University. It also reveals that NCATE indicators are aligned with IET indicators. The study has important implications and discussions that can be used for future study.
