Four new locations in the Northeast have been chosen to host the Fall 2007 I=B=R Heating School this October and November:
• Oct. 23: Burlington, Mass.
• Oct. 24: Pawtucket, R.I .
• Nov. 6: White Plains, N.Y. brp> • Nov. 7: Edison, N.J.

Developed by GAMA’s Hydronics Institute Division, the I=B=R School provides expert training to contractors, wholesalers, plumbers and installers on basic hydronic heating system design and installation.

This year’s I=B=R School has been redesigned with a one-day format led by new instructor Bob Hedden, a fourth generation master plumber/heating contractor. Hedden, a 40-year industry veteran, is executive director of the Oilheat Manufacturers Association and senior project manager for research and education of the National Oilheat Research Alliance.

School hours are 8 a.m.–5 p.m. at each location. Students can earn eight NORA CEUs for taking the course. The new, lower registration fee of $295 includes lunch, beverages, the I=B=R Guide, an accompanying workbook, and certificate of course completion.
