Welcome to the site where the original Instant Character Recognition experience began.
The original concept of Instant Character Recognition continues to be the only program that consistently provides positive student outcomes largely because of its uniquely exclusive focus on the ICR experience itself. We focus on YOUR progress through experiencing ICR and other connecting skills.
Learning is a Guide
Experiencing is a Teacher
This CW Innovations program was inspired by Nancy Kott, WZ8C (SK). Nancy’s amazing insights originally led Glenn Norman, W4YES, to harness her concepts, starting in 2016, to be the driving force behind the process known as “Instant Character Recognition,” or ICR.
The process is as unique as each student, and it is designed that way. The program modules are tailored to address each student’s experience, challenges and progress. Each stage of the course is complemented by personal feedback to students from a team leader.
But a process alone is only one tool we employ. “The Comprehensive ICR Course” uses ICR as a foundational element and combines all necessary CW disciplines to comprise your complete CW learning experience.
Today it has grown into a one-of-a-kind global phenomenon, staying true to its origins of quality and an unrelenting focus to provide the tools for CW operators to reach their goals.
