March 15, 2001

RESTON, Va. — VCampus® Corporation (Nasdaq:VCMP – news), the leading provider of end-to-end e-learning solutions, today announced that Encompass Electrical Technologies, a division of Encompass Services Corporation (NYSE:ESR – news), the premier facilities services provider in the United States, will be launching a VCampus-powered online learning site to offer courses to the 101 business units in the division.

Encompass Electrical Technologies will leverage VCampus’ extensive library of world-class courseware to launch its site quickly with immediate offerings, and will work with VCampus to develop custom modules in additional areas of special interest to its 17,000 employees. VCampus will provide full hosting and delivery of the solution through its ASP-model platform.

“We are excited about the continued momentum we are seeing as major companies like Encompass sign on for VCampus solutions,” said Daniel Neal, President and CEO of VCampus. “Encompass is the perfect example of a company that is meeting critical business needs immediately by launching a quality e-learning solution through the fully outsourced model. The fact that this contract resulted from a referral from another large VCampus customer, Graybar, is a testament to VCampus’ success in providing high quality e-learning solutions with a superior customer satisfaction record.”

The Encompass e-learning site will provide comprehensive training programs in technology, telecommunications, and soft skills such as management, office and personal development skills. Encompass Electrical Technologies employees across the nation will be able to take the courses at times that fit their individual schedules.

The site, which was built in five days, was launched during the recent annual training convention of the Encompass Electrical Technologies Division in Orlando. Employees now have access to more than 80 courses online.

“E-learning is an important benefit for Encompass to offer our business units to help them maintain cutting edge work forces, increase employee productivity and retention, and remain competitive in today’s fast-paced technology environment,” said Jack Smith, Director of Organizational Development and Training for Encompass Electrical Technologies. “The VCampus solution enabled us to offer quality courses rapidly without having to dedicate substantial internal resources such as IT staff to the project.”
