BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. — The I=B=R Schools offered by the Hydronics Institute Division of the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA) for the past 50 years will be managed by Business News Publishing (BNP). BNP publishes over 40 separate news magazines, includingThe Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration News.

According to the Hydronics Institute, while the I=B=R classes have been offered since the 1950s, the classes have undergone some transformations over the last few years.

One of the major changes has been the use of a new hands-on training manual, Residential Hydronic Heating Design/Installation. The 400-page book features more than 300 full-color illustrations with instruction and commentary. Industry experts Jim Roche, Jim Goins, and Dan Almeida will be teaching the classes.

The I=B=R classes are held over two days and will be offered in several locations beginning in November. To view the upcoming schedule for the course, visit or call Keri Wrobel at 248-362-3700.
