CompTIA Network+ - $71,207

CompTIA certifications are international, vendor-neutral certifications that validate a candidate’s knowledge of a specific field. The CompTIA Network+ certification demonstrates the professional qualifications of a networking professional. The Network+ exam covers installation and configuration, media and topologies, management, and security. The CompTIA Network+ certification is accredited by the ISO and ANSI. The CompTIA Network+ certification may be kept current through the CompTIA Continuing Education program.

When the conversation amongst IT professionals turns to IT certifications, one of their first thoughts is of high salaries – dollar signs dancing in their heads. While some certifications do command a six-figure salary, this is not true for all. With the recent completion of their annual IT Skills and Salary report, Randy Muller, an instructor at Global Knowledge, thought it would be a great time to look at some of the more popular certifications – and their associated pay.

Note: The rankings below are based on certifications that received the minimum 200 responses required to derive a salary figure that is statically accurate. There are certifications that pay more that are not represented due to their exclusive nature. These include CCIE: Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert and VCDX: VMware Certified Design Expert, for example.
