FORT WORTH, TX, April 25, 2006 -- Wallingford Software Inc. will launch its new USA training program in Philadelphia, PA, on June 26 offering training courses approved by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).

Under the new program, training courses on Wallingford's full line of software products will be offered around the country in cities such as San Francisco, Atlanta, Seattle, Tampa, and Austin, TX. The comprehensive training program includes both introductory and advanced courses on InfoWorks CS, InfoNet, InfoWorks WS, InfoWorks RS and FloodWorks. A series of one-day seminars will also be launched, designed to keep water resource engineers abreast of new modeling techniques and hot topics in the industry. These seminars serve as a great introduction for engineers considering using a Wallingford product on an upcoming project or those looking to make a change from their current vendor.

In an effort to provide its clients with a full range of training options, Wallingford Software is also offering on-site training that can be held at any site specified by the client on any Wallingford Software product, as well as on-line training over the web in either 1 hour or ½ day increments. All courses and seminars are approved by IACET (International Association for Continuing Education and Training) enabling attendees to earn Professional Development Hours and Continuing Education Units (CEU's), which are required for P.E. renewal in many states.

Nikki Beckom, Director of Training Services says, "We're looking forward to kicking off our new training program. Our clients have expressed the need to have more accessible training in their areas of the country with a more comprehensive list of course offerings. This program is designed to do just that."

In Philadelphia Wallingford Software is offering the 'Introduction to InfoWorks CS' training course on June 26 and 27, as well as on June 28 a one-day seminar on InfoNet, InfoWorks CS, and InfoWorks WS for potential users to learn more about the products. The next training location will be San Francisco, Aug. 21-25.
