Irvine, CA, March 12, 2010 --( Resources Global Professionals, a leading multinational provider of professional services and the operating subsidiary of Resources Connection, Inc. (NASDAQ: RECN), is partnering with IASeminars, a prominent global International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) training provider, to offer CPAs and other financial professionals a comprehensive range of IFRS training solutions.

"There will be a tremendous need for continuing education for all of our clients in the coming years," said Stacey Tedeschi, managing director of Resources’ finance and accounting services. "That need will not only be around the eventual conversion to IFRS but, more immediately, around continuing convergence efforts between the IASB and FASB that will essentially change U.S. GAAP as we know it. By partnering with IASeminars, we are able to provide a complete suite of outstanding training services to our clients around the globe at a cost-effective rate, keeping with the core principles of our business model."

"IASeminars is proud to be working with Resources Global Professionals to provide CPAs and other professionals with a wide range of solutions to their worldwide IFRS training requirements," said IASeminars CEO Marc Gardiner. "By working together to assist our mutual clients, we will be able to address diverse needs for training, information and assistance as U.S. preparers and users of financial information and others around the world tackle this important period of transition."

With more than 100 international accounting courses available in some 50 cities around the world (including more than 20 U.S. locations), the IASeminars technical training courses will help participants to learn how IFRS compares to U.S. GAAP, how to apply the international accounting standards and how to plan for IFRS adoption.

Some of the more popular IASeminars courses include:

• IFRS Overview with U.S. GAAP Comparison
