2022 Annual Salary Survey

Certification Magazine conducts a Salary Survey each year. Survey participants are working IT professionals in the United States and elsewhere around the world who hold at least one current IT certification. Initial findings from the Salary Survey are published in print in our Winter (January) quarterly issue and posted serially throughout the first three months of the year at CertMag.com.

Additional articles that feature previously unpublished survey data are posted throughout the year exclusively at CertMag.com. If you’re just looking for the Salary Survey 75 list, then you’ll find a link below, or you can just scroll down this page.
