FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- April 23, 2013

Rand Worldwide (OTCBB: RWWI), a global leader in providing technology
solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology
requirements, announced that its courseware division, ASCENT- Center for
Technical Knowledge, today released the latest Autodesk Official Training
Guide (AOTG) – Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2014: BIM Workflow for
Roads and Highways. This training guide is the first ever by ASCENT to
integrate a suite of software so that planners, engineers-in-training, and
civil and transportation engineers can immediately integrate workflows across
the Autodesk software products to intelligently leverage the Building
Information Modeling (BIM) process.

“As Autodesk suites include more software products with enhanced capabilities,
the power of BIM workflows increases,” says Michelle Rasmussen, Senior
Instructional Designer, ASCENT. “When Autodesk asked us to develop this
training guide, the vision was to ensure the engineer could immediately start
leveraging the full power of BIM using this robust software suite. To reach
this goal, we knew we had to create a training guide that would connect the
software pieces together so that the end-user could develop effective
workflows that would dramatically increase their effectiveness.”

Comprehensive Training Guide

This unique training guide walks through an example of a workflow for a road
and highway design project using Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite
Ultimate. Students will use Autodesk InfraWorks, AutoCAD Civil 3D, Autodesk
Navisworks Manage, Autodesk 360, AutoCAD WS, and Autodesk 3ds Max Design to
complete a road design project from project planning through visual
communication and construction documentation.

Ideal for both individual self-study use and instructor-led classroom use,
this guide focuses on teaching a workflow for designing roads and highways to
help Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite Ultimate users be more efficient,
accelerate project approvals, and win more work. It is the only AOTG training
guide that walks through the project oriented workflow using the multiple
products of a software suite.
