Our people

We value all our people. Here’s a little information about our core management team.

In 1991 John who had a military and management background, saw an opportunity after the deregulation of the telecommunications industry. He believed that there was a market for high quality technical training delivered by industry experts.

JB Hunter started small with the Austel licencing training courses in Newcastle and Sydney, but quickly shifted into high gear adding other mainstream telecommunication skills courses such as internal building cabling, high speed data and optical fibre installation. We became a truly national training provider by extending our course delivery into the major capitals and regional areas of Australia 1994.
