Pay by Experience Level for Vocational Training Instructor

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


Vocational Training Instructors with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Survey participants with less than five years' experience report a median income of $34K, and earnings aren't much higher for respondents who have five to 10 years under their belts; respondents in the latter group report a median of just $37K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $40K. Veterans who have worked for more than two decades do tend to make the most in the end; the median pay for this group is $49K.
