Salary Survey – 2016 Annual Salary Survey

Annual Salary Survey Project Management Virtualization Networking

Our Salary Survey results (see below), included more than 800 certifications. It’s ranking by average base salary in 2015, was drawn from the most statistically relevant certs in the survey — those held by the largest numbers of survey respondents. The Salary Survey is global, but roughly 42 percent of all respondents this year are from the United States, nearly four times as many as came from any other country. Accordingly, our results are shown with average U.S. salaries listed separately, followed by an average of all non-U.S. salaries, followed by an average that combines those two groups.
