This research aimed to: develop a model for vocational instructors’ acceptance of online instruction after they had arranged online instruction for one year; and investigate the consistency of this model using the empirical evidence gained from 1,818 vocational instructors from five regions in Thailand: the Northern Region, the Northeastern Region, the Central Region, the Eastern Region and Bangkok, and the Southern Region. The research instrument used to collect the data was a questionnaire on the vocational instructors’ acceptance of online instruction. The data were analysed using construct validity and the consistency of the causal relationship model. The research findings revealed that social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the vocational instructors’ adjusted attitudes towards online instruction for the better. This adjustment directly affected some changes in the instructors’ behaviour in physical classroom instruction to online instruction in the following period.
