Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Sir or Madam,
Dear Sir or Madam,
Two days ago I saw an online advertisement which invited interested professionals to book their seat for a training course titled ‘Customer Service Through the Customer’s Eyes’. I think this course would be quite helpful for me to excel in my current job. Therefore, I am hoping that you would permit me to participate in it.
In relation to the specifics of the program, SkillTrack, a reputed human resource development company, will be conducting this course. They will hire some renowned guest speakers along with their full-time skilled trainers to administer the training sessions. It will be a week-long session and will cover several important aspects of customer management including how to transform customers into active advocates for a service-oriented company.
The session will commence on 7th July and requires prior booking. I am hoping that you would allow me a leave for 7 days to attend the course as they have day-long sessions. In addition, I expect my company to bear half of the course fee. I am quite positive that the training program will enhance my skills and insights on customer management, which I am willing to apply for the company. We are losing so many customers each month and I want to contribute to reverse it. This course would help me achieve that.
Eagerly waiting for your positive response.
