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.

Successful modern manufacturing processes rely on accurate practical information and the ability of staff to understand and apply such information.

In a global and competitive marketplace, knowledge and skills are increasingly important. SATRA has designed this training course for all technologists involved in any aspect of footwear production.


Once the course is complete, SATRA will notify you of the next opportunity to take optional written examinations. You must obtain a pass in five of the six modules if you wish to receive a SAFT accreditation. You do not need to take all five examinations at one time, but you must obtain passes in all the papers within two years to obtain accreditation.

Six key areas

• Lasts, fitting & comfort
• Materials & constructions
• Laboratory testing procedures
• Product design, performance & risk assessment
• Quality assurance & supplier auditing
• Industrial footwear.
