The Samurai's Triumphant Return from the 21st Annual Appliance Service Training Institute (ASTI)

ASTI, training
The eagle has landed back up here in yankee-land. Awesome conference but great to be back in that crisp New Hampshire air.

From Sun Country back to Snow Country... my brain is so full of the latest and greatest appliance info, I've got to relieve the pressure by sharing it with all of you as soon as possible! Stay tuned for pearls to be cast your way soon. Mrs. Samurai is working feverishly at translating my neanderthal scribblings called "notes" into a digital format that would be recognized as Engrish by the Anglo-Ameedikan world. She even wrote up a press release about us that we're submitting to our local newspaper for publi-frikkin-cation. Check it out, yo: http://applianceguru...ru-attends.html

But seriously, mah bruvahs, this ASTI was a fantastic convention-- I can honestly say it was the best one yet! I met lots of great techs, re-connected with old friends and made lots of new ones. And learned a helluva lot! Mucho mega-kudos to all the instructors, my fellow classmates, and the ASTI organizers!

The instructors from the various manufacturers were all top drawer dudes. Of the classes that I took, the best two Top Guns were Nick Webert, Samsung, and Andy Kalter, Whirlpool. These guys kicked total appliance boot-ay and revealed coveted and esoteric pearls of appliantological wisdom as only true Masters in The Craft can do. Diane Hoffman with Reckitt-Benckiser (detergent manufacturer, Finish, Jet Dry, Affresh, and lots of other good stuff) was Best-in-Show for non-appliance manufacturer-but-still-technical-appliance-stuff sessions.

Were you at the recent ASTI with the Samurai? Well, we have special deal for you, GI: http://appliantology...ntologists.html

Even though I was in class all day long, I still had some time off to spend with my peeps. Here are a few clips of some scenes around Disney, including the Coronado Resort where the ASTI was held:

Heading down to the ASTI in Orlando tomorrow (March 5) to bask in the cornucopia of pearls of appliantological wisdom being cast out by the various appliance manufacturers!

The ASTI is going on from March 6 - 9 and I'll be returning on Sunday, March 10. Since I won't have my desktop computer with me, I won't be able to upload service manual requests but I may still be able to PM download links from my Dropbox. I'll still have my iPhone and iPad with me and will check in with the Appliantology forums here as much as possible. Of course, I'll still be available via PM or through the Contact form.

I'll be in classes all during the day (while my wife and kids are off in the Disney parks) and then working on transcribing my notes in the evenings to post them here. Classes are held Wednesday through Saturday and I'll be attending two training sessions each day from various manufacturers.

But don't you fret none 'cuz ol' Samurai's planning on bringin' back the goods for his homies! My plan is to transcribe my notes from each class and post them here to my blog as separate blog entries. That way, those of you who won't be attending can at least get some benefit from the classes. You can check out my training agenda here so you can see what classes I'll be taking on which days.

Stay tuned!
