Pay by Experience Level for Certified Prosthetist/Orthotist (CPO)

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For Certified Prosthetists and Orthotists, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Although individuals who have less than five years' experience earn $57K on average, people with five to 10 years benefit from a notably larger average of $66K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Certified Prosthetists and Orthotists make a median salary of $76K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $84K.
