The study focuses on the development and validation of competency model for the Tourism officers in the Philippines. It aims to identify the competency constructs of the profession aligned with Tourism Act 2009, based from literature review, document analysis and interview. The process is furthered by acquiring consensus from panel of experts for content validity and exploratory analysis from the result of initial questionnaire survey in order to come up with a measurement instrument of the competency model. The methodological aspects described in this paper will present both qualitative and quantitative approaches. Further research explores the assessment of the acquired competencies of tourism officers and the importance of interventions to address gap of competencies as perceived by local and provincial tourism officers. The study will utilize Anova, T-test and weighted mean through random sampling. Implications for future research and program enhancement will be discussed.
