SATRA Technology will be holding the SAFT (SATRA Accredited Footwear Technologist) training course between the 24th September to 9th October at the Crowne Plaza Portland-Lake Oswego, Lake Oswego, OR. 

SATRA’s SAFT training course is the most comprehensive and up-to-date of its kind and is an internationally recognised qualification within the footwear industry.

The information it contains is divided into six key areas of footwear manufacture: Lasts, fitting  and comfort; Materials and constructions; Laboratory testing procedures; Product design and lean manufacturing; Risk assessment and quality assurance and Industrial footwear.

Each module is led by a SATRA specialist and covered in detail over a two-day intensive training period, which includes comprehensive documentation to support the lecture and practical sessions.

There is a variable cost per module, depending on how many modules are attended. 

Successful modern manufacturing processes rely on accurate and practical information, and the ability of staff members to understand and apply such information. In a global and competitive marketplace, knowledge and skills are increasingly important so SATRA has designed this training course for technologists involved in any aspect of footwear production. Once the course is complete, attendees have the opportunity to take optional written examinations to receive SATRA SAFT accreditation.

Places on the course are limited so please express your interest as early as possible to avoid disappointment. The cut off date for accepting bookings is 30th August 2020. Please see the attached document for further information, syllabus, course fees and booking details.
