Considering developments and advances in technology and the future needs of teaching skills based on changes in labor markets and the need to respond, there is a need to design a model of competencies required for effective job performance of instructors. Thus, the present study was conducted with the aim of designing and testing the model of professional competencies of instructors in the comprehensive university of applied-science. The research method was applied in terms of aim, and quantitative in terms of method. Inferential analysis method and data description and factor analysis (exploratory and confirmatory) were used to analyze the questionnaire data and present the results. Due to confirmation of questions by the experts, the content validity of the questionnaire was confirmed. The statistical population of the study included 54000 people and the sample consisted of 391 university instructors. Cochran's formula was used to calculate the sample size. Cronbach's alpha coefficient of the questionnaire was obtained at .90 and the used instrument showed a good reliability. The collected data were analyzed using SPSS 16 and Smart PLS software. The tested factors included leadership, assessment, perceptual, classroom management, technological and virtual, educational, obligation, positive perfectionism, ethical, and global mindset. These factors were evaluated through a questionnaire and factor loads were assessed using factor analysis. Since in all components, both the factor load and their path coefficient were more than .30, and the whole model was significant, no component was removed from the path analysis and all their components and indicators were accepted as components of the model of professional competencies of instructors.
