I personally recommend Pluralsight's online training. They have wide variety of topics, including WCF covering 4.0. Check it out at pluralsight.com

It might sound silly, but I recommend Microsoft's official WCF 4 course:
http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/course.aspx?ID=10263A

Usually I don't like MS courses, but in this case I wrote the course for Microsoft, so i'm familiar with its content.

If you're checking it for a group of people, you can contact me and I'll give you more information (idof at sela.co.il).

For 4.0 WCF try these:

Pay for:

Below is not specifically 4.0 training but for those who are looking to get started or increase their knowledge the items below will do so perfectly. 

For free WCF training there are brilliant webcasts done by Michelle Bustamante (this lady knows her stuff).
Her series of 15 webcasts are definitely worth covering, she puts things across well with good examples.

There is also an online training outfit called LearnDevNow, these guys provide training for a huge number of subjects, they really have a vast library of .Net training amongst others including WCF for next to nothing. Their homepage is located at http://www.learndevnow.com/ and what they cover for WCF is located at http://www.learndevnow.com/Topic.aspx?id=96 You can get more online training from these guys than what you would have time for and it currently costs $99. Their material is more than enough to provide you with an excellent foundation to get you going. I would imagine that WCF 4.0 will be out later this year and you automatically get and new courseware from them when you purchase there library.

The above will definitely get anyone who wants to progress in WCF going.

Good luck
Ricky

All

Thank you for your responses I am trying to develop a WCF Application that will allow me to have a User Interface Windows Service that is connected to a Serial Port. I need to be able to encapsulate my Radio Telemetry from a serial port network in a TCPIP transfer. Ultimately I need to transfer just a byte array which seems easy with WCF however I need to develop a trouble shooting UI. That will give me the ability to trouble shoot my serial information issues.

Thanks & Regards
