Pay by Experience Level for Board Certified Behavior Analyst

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
More years of relevant experience do not necessarily translate to higher paychecks. Average salaries for inexperienced employees average out to around $52K, but folks who have five to 10 years of experience earn a higher median of $60K. Board Certified Behavior Analysts see a median salary of $71K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Board Certified Behavior Analysts who have stuck around for more than two decades see earnings that are only slightly higher than those of folks who have worked for 10 to 20 years; the more senior group makes around $77K on average. In this field, workers tend to have anywhere from one to nine years of experience — of those surveyed, a fair portion land within this range. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up close to a sixth of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining fewer than one in twenty.
