Band 8.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to express my interest in pursuing an IT training course which will benefit my job. I saw an online advertisement about ‘Oracle – Big Data’ training session that will be conducted by a team of experts from Google.

The course comprises of cutting edge technologies and agile methodologies in the database domain. The training session will be held next week at their company premises. As I am an active member of an online tech community, I have received an offer that allows me to attend the course at the discounted fee of 300 dollars. Since our company has an upskilling policy, I am hoping that I will receive a reimbursement of the training cost post successful completion of the course.

This course will certainly boost my technical skills and also enhance my contribution to our team to a great extent. I am positive that it will also help our future project migrations from older and outdated technology to newer technologies.
I hope that the management will approve my request taking into account my sincere interest in doing the course and the many benefits it offers.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
