This research proposes a functional competency development model for academic personnel based on international professional qualification standards in computing field and examines the appropriateness of the model. Specifically, the model consists of three key components which are: 1) functional competency development model, 2) blended training system for academic personnel, and 3) test for computer science certifications. For functional competency development model, there are five sub-components which are: 1) objective, 2) qualities of academic personnel, 3) trainers, 4) content (curriculum), and 5) training plan. Next, the proposed blended training system consists of six different training modules which are: 1) pre-test, 2) face-to-face training, 3) e-Video lecture, 4) e-Web cooperation, 5) post-test, and 6) feedback. Lastly, for the third key component, there are 3 levels of certifications which are: 1) basic level, 2) specialist level, and 3) professional level, accordingly. The assessment result, based on opinions of 9 experts in the form of 5-point Likert scale, reveals that these three components and all their sub-components are rated as the highly appropriate ( x = 4.50).
