Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Certified Prosthetists and Orthotists — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $56K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $66K. For Certified Prosthetists and Orthotists, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $76K. Veterans who have surpassed the 20-year mark may make only slightly more than those who are navigating the mid-career stage; the more senior group reports median earnings of around $83K.
