The second wave of Modern Engineering Concepts For Hydronic Heating Design seminars will feature a new twist - regional sponsors, allowing wholesalers and manufacturer reps to participate in 2005. Previously, only national sponsorship was available. Regional sponsors can select from any of the 10 cities slated to host the seminars.

The comprehensive seminars are taught by hydronics expert John Siegenthaler, P.E., and have been updated for 2005. Attendees receive a full day of instruction, an illustrated seminar workbook, Hydronic Circuit Simulator CD Software, a collection of manufacturer reference information, a certificate of completion, and lunch and snacks. Seminar cost is $395.

Regional and national sponsors will be included in the CD reference section, on the seminar Web site and in promotional literature. The dates and locations for 2005 are:
