Certification Salary Survey Results
Part Four: Salary by Additional Certification

Previous page > Salary by Gender, Age, Location, etc. > Page 1, 2, 3, 4

This table shows the breakdown of salaries based on the first two certifications entered by a respondent.

  • The first certification entered is listed in the "Cert1" column with any second certifications listed in the "Cert2" column.
  • For certifications with no second cert listed, or for those who did not enter a salary, you will find an entry of "--".
  • The amounts in bold represent the average salary for Cert1, regardless of the presence of a second certification.

To interpret the results look at the Brainbench Cert listed below. The average salary for all those with a Brainbench cert as their first selection, regardless of any additional certs, is $36,176.92. However, one person also had a A+ cert in addition to the Brainbench cert. They earned $30,000. 11 people had only a Brainbench cert with no other certs and averaged $38,027.27.
