The SAFT (SATRA Accredited Footwear Technologist) award is an internationally recognised qualification, and is clear evidence that you are a footwear technologist with a proven range of knowledge. You will receive the most comprehensive and up-to-date information in six key areas of footwear manufacture.

Each module is led by a SATRA specialist and covered in detail during two days’ intensive training including comprehensive documentation.

This module will focus on footwear from the customers’ perspective – what they expect from their shoes in terms of fit and comfort, and how the manufacturer can satisfy these expectations, and thus maximise sales and develop brand loyalty.

Module 1 will cover:

• the foot: structure, function and foot health
• biomechanics (how we walk): gait cycle
• comfort factors: cushioning and sweat management
• shoe size systems: UK/USA, Euro, Mondopoint
• lasts: design, construction and shape assessment
• fit assessment: method and analysis.

SAFT course fees are inclusive of lunch and refreshments, and are quoted in British Pounds.
Single module cost: £850 (+VAT where applicable)
Three modules or more £790 (+VAT where applicable)
Modules 2,4 and 5 consist of two separate parts and so a delegate may attend only one of the days at a cost of £425 (or £395 if attending three or more modules)
