Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am Mohit Sharma from the operations department. I am writing this letter to thank you for selecting me for the training course on computer skills. Unfortunately, I cannot attend this course because of family commitments and I apologise for the same.

I know by attending this training I would have improved / enhanced my MS Office skills. It even included a certification at the end of the course, which, perhaps, is a great opportunity to get hands on experience. However, sadly I will not be able to attend the training, as I have to be present at my sister’s wedding, which is an unavoidable event.

This course is of paramount importance because it is undeniably beneficial for me and my future. As per the policies, this particular training is conducted twice a year. I would request you to reschedule my training for the next one.

I await a favourable response.

Yours faithfully,

Amit Shah

    I know that this course will help me to improve my computer skills especially in Excel and MS Office, and provide with the certificate, which is useful for my career growth . Moreover, the workshop will help to get the hands on experience which is a rare opportunity. Unfortunately, I cannot attend the class due to the visit of our CEO to my department.
    From the policy, I read that this course is available after two months. I would request you to include my name on that section, if it is possible. Otherwise, provide me with the instructions to register again.
