Referral Letter for a Friend Applying for a Training Program

It is important to know why and when referral letters are written. A referral letter is basically a confirmation or reliability letter that you write for someone. Its purpose is to confirm that you know the person and assure that you consider him a potential person to be referred. Referral letters can be written by ex-employers for their employees, teachers for their students to get admission in good institutes or friends and colleagues for their friends etc. It should be noted that a referral letter is a letter of responsibility. Referral letters should not be written if you do not consider the relevant person capable. It will be an undue favor in this case and will snatch the right of a deserving person.

This sample letter given below can be used to write a referral letter for a friend applying for a training program.
