Cloud computing and cybersecurity account for the top four information technology (IT) certifications in the United States when it comes to salaries, according to a new report by IT training company Global Knowledge.

“IT professionals with these skills are in high demand and command the largest paychecks in the industry,” the Cary, N.C.-based company said in a report released this week.

Seven new certifications made Global Knowledge’s “15 Top-Paying IT Certifications for 2020” report, which is based on survey responses from the Global Knowledge 2020 IT Skills and Salary Survey that will be released this spring.

The overall average IT salary is $136,185 for certifications included in the survey, with the highest salary eclipsing $175,000. The top three cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud -- account for five of the top-paying credentials.

Global Knowledge for the first time provided a look at the average certification-holder for each of the credentials, with information about how many current certifications those IT professionals possess, their ages and most likely job roles.

“We offer this new information to provide a more representative picture of each certification,” Global Knowledge said. “The salaries…aren’t simply a result of achieving a specified certification -- they are a culmination of many factors, including relevant skills, job role, tenure and hard work.”

Here’s a look at the top 15 certifications that made the list.
