Morse Code may be learned in a class or by self-study using a number of methods. A popular way is to download a software program that teaches the Morse Code and provides drills at progressively higher speeds until the student is ready for the examination.
It should be noted that while Morse Code is almost extinct in the commercial radio services, it still has wide usage in Amateur Radio. As a proficiency speed beyond the five words per minute is desirable, it is important to learn and practice the Morse Code so as not to inhibit your own future speed development. An accepted practice is to use what is known as the Farnsworth Method whereby character speed is faster than the word speed, allowing longer timing spaces for comprehension. One of the most popular Morse Code learning and practice programs is called Morse Academy.
