A letter of certification is a letter that is used to verify previous information in written form, usually past employment. If you were looking for a new job, you would request a letter of certification from your previous employer verifying that you did work for them in the past and in what capacity.
Tips for writing a letter of certification
- Be clear – use exact dates as to when your employee started and finished their term of employment with you
- Be explicit – state what their specific responsibilities were at your company
- Include contact information – include information where the receiver of the letter can contact you for further information

This letter is to certify that James Brown worked as a general accountant at Triangle corp. for the period from November 5th, 2004 to December 12th, 2008.
