Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a competency indicator model for enhancing soft skills competencies of engineering auditor to the third party, specifically in Thailand. Personal skills are crucial for professional success. The researchers collected data through documentary analysis of relevant research papers and expert interviews by using Delphi technique to develop soft skills competencies that are the required competencies for Engineering Inspector Model (SSCE Model). The model consists of 64 necessary competency indicators, derived from Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA). All indicators were found to be valid, with factor loadings ranging from 0.6785 to 0.9315, indicating good to excellent reliability. Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient was employed to assess interrelationships among the components, revealing that all 13 components were positively correlated, with coefficients above 0. The components of ethics and time management exhibited the strongest correlation, with a coefficient of 0.7187. These 13 components can explain the competency model for engineering inspectors, with the top 5 most significant components: 1) Personality, 2) Adaptability, 3) Ethics, 4) Life -long Learning, and 5) Complicated Problem-Solving Skill. These findings elucidate the competency model for engineering auditors in Thailand.
