The SATRA Accredited Footwear Technologist (SAFT) training course will be held between 25th September and 12th October 2023 in Costa Mesa, California.

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 the member-only SATRA Accredited Footwear Technologist (SAFT) training course for all technologists involved in any aspect of footwear production.

Each module will be 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.
