The Hydronics Institute (HI) Division of GAMA recently reintroduced its I=B=R schools with six sessions in four states. The courses were held during Nov. 2003 in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Minnesota, and drew 218 students.

Instructor Dan Almeida led the two-day sessions by teaching the fundamentals of hydronic system design, heat loss calculations, pipe sizing and installation, indirect water heating and several related topics. BNP Media's Conferencing Group promotes and manages the courses.
