Ferguson offers single-day and two-day Fujitsu VRF system training programs in locations across the eastern U.S region. We also offer an abbreviated course for contractors who simply need to install a single-phase Fujitsu VRF system for light commercial or residential use.

Single-day Fujitsu RAIT VRF training

The single-day Fujitsu training course, known as Regional Airstage Installation Training or RAIT, exposes attendees to the basics features and functions of Fujitsu Airstage VRF equipment. The single-day RAIT training is taught at all eastern Ferguson locations where Fujitsu VRF is sold and is a prerequisite for the two-day Fujitsu Airstage VRF training. We also offer an abbreviated version of the single-day course for contractors who simply need to install a single-phase Fujitsu VRF system for light commercial or residential use.

Two-day Fujitsu Airstage VRF training

The two-day Fujitsu Airstage VRF training course is taught at two Ferguson locations: one in Louisville, Kentucky, and the other at the Ferguson VRF Technology Center in Chesapeake, Virginia. The course is also taught at Fujitsu’s location in Pinebrook, New Jersey, and is hosted by a Ferguson VRF sales engineer.

Attendees of the two-day Airstage training course learn how to lay out, install and troubleshoot Fujitsu Airstage VRF systems in a hands-on lab featuring fully functional VRF equipment. Once you complete the course and pass the final test, you will become an official Fujitsu certified trained contractor. As an added benefit, your name will be included on our reference list of VRF certified contractors. This provides you with the potential for future lead-generating opportunities for your contracting business.
