A two day technical workshop covering the key aspects of footwear testing and the important  principles of laboratory management.

As manufacturers and brands strive to improve the quality of their products, many companies are relying more heavily on footwear testing. Brands expect their suppliers to implement test routines to ensure basic quality and fit-for-purpose products, and will only accept test results from well managed, accredited laboratories. Many technicians are trained on individual tests, but have little knowledge of basic testing principles and the key elements of laboratory management. Unless laboratories have robust management and quality systems in place, the validity of test reports can be compromised. Establishing a footwear laboratory is a big investment and it is important to make sure that all staff involved are fully trained to provide an accurate reliable service.

This course is aimed at laboratory technicians, supervisors and managers. This two-day workshop is open to SATRA members only.
