Bob Kinney, RCDD, OSP Specialist, CFTH Professional, JE-98
Bob Kinney founded Integrated Technologies Corporation in April, 1987. Initially, Bob started out as an Journeyman Electrician in 1983 and then attained his Electrical Contractor’s license in 1986. Within the first year of operating as an electrical contractor, Bob read an article about a new data/telecommunications industry that was developing a niche for commercial applications here in the United States, and it was called fiber optics. With an Electrical Engineering background, Bob understood the future impact of fiber optics in the data/telecommunications world. He found this new technology exciting and knew this was the direction he wanted ITC to go.
In 1988, Bob received his first formal training as a fiber optics technician at Siecor (Corning Cable Systems) in North Carolina. From that point on, Bob focused on the telecommunications and data communications world as the technology for ITC to master. By 1998, Bob and ITC were established as the premiere fiber optics contractor in New Mexico.
From the beginning, Bob saw the need for the continued and specialized training when new advances in fiber optics and data cabling were introduced. To ensure that ITC always stayed ahead of the curve, Bob placed continuing education as the priority for all ITC employees. Because of this foresight, it was a natural process to include a training center when it was time to build the new office of Integrated Technologies Corporation.
In October of 2000, Integrated Technologies Corporation and Integrated Training Center were completed and Integrated Training Center quickly established itself as the only certified BICSI training center in New Mexico. Already a Certified BICSI Technician, Bob became an RCDD, then a certified BICSI instructor. He then created a Fiber Optic Association, (FOA) endorsed fiber optics training program for Integrated Training Center. Integrated Training Center would not be a forerunner in the data cabling, fiber optics, telecommunications, low voltage training industry, without Bob’s drive and passion for this technology.
