"I have known Ian since becoming his colleague (1994, Elders) when Ian moved from out West to the Sydney Basin. Although we have both moved on, we still stay in touch, notably via the (3 yearly) Agsafe courses Ian conducts. Given Ian s life long experience, dealing with the many facets of the agricultural chemical industry these courses are always of interest, speckling the in it self some times dry theory with a never ending stream of funny and practical anecdotes."

"Ian Johnson has been an integral part of our WH&S program for the use of farm chemicals. Every staff member and research student has been trained by Ian Johnson in using Agvet chemicals correctly and safety via the ChemCert program.
The Faculty has appreciated his advice and expertise in area of Agvet chemicals and their effect with food safety and environmental impacts. We are able to achieve our aim of best practice in the use of Agvet chemicals for our research and to pass this knowledge to the next generation of Agriculturalists in our teaching courses. Our wide range of International staff and visitors ensures Ian's knowledge is passed to the wider audience of the world and they take back to their countries the best practices Australia is incorporating."

“I thoroughly enjoyed the catch up through the module, as I did Barney's [Ian Barnett, previously regarded as one of the best Agsafe & ChemCert trainers] considered original training. Added to that I have a very high respect of people who communicate well, like yourself and Barney. Good luck.”
