 COMMERCIAL DIPLOMATS: A NEW EMERGING CLASS OF REGULATED CAREER PROFESSIONALS 

The commercial diplomat requires all the finesse and knowledge of foreign cultures required by a traditional diplomat. In addition, the commercial diplomat must acquire a wide range of analytical, policy advocacy and interpersonal, critical thinking, public diplomacy, anti-corruption, negotiating and commercial diplomatic skills. To qualify for accreditation, the applicant must complete the required mandatory qualifying programme. While attaining QPA or QCD is a challenge, it allows practitioners to remain current with what is new in commercial diplomatic field, and to incorporate the latest research techniques into their practises.

 

Mandatory Qualifying Programme

QCD Mandatory Qualifying Programme is the most rigorous continuing professional training programme for the career commercial diplomat. A commercial diplomat who has qualified and earned the designation "Qualified Certified Diplomat" (QCD) has completed a structured and demanding set of requirements involving aII the required disciplines and projects. The aim of the Qualifying provisions is to provide for the regulation of career commercial diplomats and to bring them in line with the rest of the global professional bodies. Only those who can fulfil the criteria of knowledge, competence, dedication, good standing and advanced professional development shall be appointed to the rank and status of, and be referred to as 'Qualified Certified Diplomat'. This in sense provides the 'bench mark' for competent career commercial diplomats.

 

QCD - Symbol of Proficiency

QCD is a symbol of proficiency, competency and professional achievement widely respected by international governmental institutions, non-governmental organisations, non-profit agencies, corporate and government employers. It is awarded by the global professional body to practitioners who have successfully completed the QCD Mandatory Qualifying Programme, the main category of professional qualification denoting a level of educational and professional achievement required followed by the development, through specialised training and significant professional experience, of key skills at higher doctoral level. 

 

As the primary umbrella-body of all practising career commercial diplomats, ACCD works closely with diplomatic and academic institutions to ensure that candidates have the appropriate skills and knowledge to qualify for professional accreditation. QCDs are uniquely qualified, competent, and skilled practitioners with complete knowledge, integrity and proven ability at doctoral and postdoctoral levels. They are able and professionally accredited to practise and train other practitioners at doctoral level.
