Our History

When the telecommunications industry was deregulated in 1991, I felt sure my army training and management experience were just what companies competing for cabling business were looking for – technical training that would allow them to be successful in this new environment.

Still, I knew we would only be successful if our courses were delivered by industry experts who could share their extensive personal experience. From the beginning, we combined this real-life expertise with a practical, hands-on approach to enhance the trade skills of all our students.

We started with the Austel licensing system training courses in Newcastle and Sydney, but quickly shifted into high gear. We picked up the other mainstream areas including internal building cabling, high speed data and optical fibre installation. 

As the industry grew we added customer-focused courses from within the customer access network and started offering courses ranging from pit and pipe installation and cable hauling through to copper and optical fibre jointing. We became a truly national training provider by extending our course delivery into the major Capitals and regional areas of Australia in 1994, initially in internal building cabling followed by Telstra accreditation courses a couple of years later.

With KRONE ® we developed and presented the “Master Installer” range of data, optical fibre installation and design training courses around Australia. These high level training courses underpin the KRONE ® product and installation warranty program.

I am proud that this relationship, which began in 1994, has not only lasted, but grown. Our clients have included Defence, Government Departments at all levels, education, and large to small businesses covering the complete spectrum of telecommunications, security and fire alarm industries.

So the JB Hunter Technology story is pretty simple – provide quality up-to-date telecommunications training, with a solid commitment to excellence. We enjoy and take pleasure from the fact that we can actively contribute to the success of our clients.

Success through knowledge!
