A Greensburg appliance repair company that has been in business since 1926 got training in the latest technology at a conference in Florida recently.

Cabin Hill Maytag, 990 N. Main St., received an honorable mention for its participation in the 2018 Appliance Service Training Institute at St. Pete Beach, Fla., from Jan. 22-25.

Hosted by the United Servicers Association, the ASTI is the largest event of its kind in North America, drawing more than 550 appliance repair professionals annually. Participants from across the United States and Canada gather for appliance repair classes in business management, marketing and technology.

“ASTI is a must for all of our technicians to remain factory-certified and to stay current on the newer electronic laden appliances,” said company President Mark A. Hartman.

During the event, Cabin Hill Maytag received hands-on technical training from appliance manufacturers such as Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Maytag, Amana and Speed Queen.

Hartman also attended multiple business courses during the event.

“Understanding the millennial mindset was one of the most valuable business courses I've attended recently. Their viewpoints differ greatly from us baby boomers as they relate to business and the workplace,” he said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
