Dear [your supervisor’s name]:
To help provide [your company] with the most current cross-cutting knowledge on nuclear facility and site decommissioning, I would like to attend the Argonne Facility Decommissioning Training Course in [location of TC you wish to attend] from [date of TC you wish to attend] .
The Training Course provides information on the basic steps in the decommissioning process and imparts lessons learned from past experience in decommissioning. Topics covered could help us in decision-making, planning, and implementation associated with decommissioning. Early and complete project planning to achieve safe and cost-effective decommissioning is also one of the key items this course is addressing.
Please note that this is a unique opportunity to network with various subject matter experts not available otherwise. The Argonne Facility Decommissioning Training Course has been independently reviewed by an expert in the decommissioning field.
[List the sessions that will provide the greatest benefit to the company. Refer to the list of topics in the Training Course Syllabus which is on the website at http://www.dd.anl.gov/ddtraining/syl.html or in the TC Brochure]

Our company will benefit from my knowledge gained in attending this Training Course, the associated materials, and other valuable resources which include references for my use in fully understanding the decommissioning process and a select reading list of other information sources.

If -for some reasons- I cannot attend the training course as planned, our company can send a substitute. We will need to forward the details of the replacement to the Training Course Director. If I get your approval for attending the course, it will probably be a good idea to already select a potential substitute.
