Four new locations in the Northeast have been chosen to host the Fall 2007 I=B=R Heating School this October and November:
  • October 23: Hilton Garden Inn, Burlington, MA
  • October 24: Comfort Inn Pawtucket-Providence, Pawtucket, RI
  • November 6: Westchester Residence Inn by Marriot, White Plains, NY
  • November 7: Holiday Inn, Edison, NJ
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 (NORA).

School hours are 8 a.m.–5 p.m. at each location. Students can earn 8 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. Students may register online using GAMA’s secure website at
