Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Miss John,

I am writing to seek your permission for enrolling in a hands-on training program on automation. I saw its advert last night on a website. I believe this crash will help me to sharpen my automation testing skills and greatly benefit our upcoming testing projects. In addition, right now it is a little difficult for us to secure projects on automation testing but if I do this course it will change.

As you know, many companies have already switched from manual testing to automated testing. So, if I get hands on experience on automation testing, I can impart the same skills to my whole manual testing team. Eventually our company will attract more projects and earn more.

The overall duration of the course is two weeks, and this is a full time program. I will not be able to attend the office, but Rakesh will take care of my current project in my absence.

I look forward to hearing a positive reply from your end.

Yours sincerely,
