I was just browsing MSDN this morning and found that Microsoft is offering some interesting training on .NET 3.0 (Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation).  If you are not already doing .NET 3.0 programming, take advantage of this course.  The next version of the framework (i.e., .NET 3.5) which should go to RTM (Release to Manufacturing) later this year, builds upon the .NET 3.0 framework.

Here's the link to the training: https://www.microsoftelearning.com/eLearning/offerDetail.aspx?offerPriceId=127367

Here are the details:
