Fala galera beleza?

A Skillsoft seguindo as pesquisas da Global Knowledge, realizou uma pesquisa de quais certificações pagam melhor no mercado  Americano e seguindo 

Algumas observações:

- Lista dominada por certificações de Cloud, em seguida certificações de Security/Cybersecurity entre as que mais pagam no mercado;

-Galera, essa pesquisa é realizada com diversos profissionais de T.I e muitas vezes o profissional tem uma ou mais certificações da lista.

- Obviamente algumas certificações não aparecem na lista devido à sua raridade no mercado (CCIE, CCDE, RHCE etc.);

- O mercado brasileiro é muito diferente do mercado global;

- A lista serve como uma base do que será tendência nos próximos anos, pois o mercado nacional demora um pouco, mas segue as tendências do mercado americano/europeu.

Throughout the history of our annual research, the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate (not Professional) has ranked on this list several times, with a few appearances at the very top.

This year, the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional (not Associate) is the highest paying IT certification in 2022, according to the 2,500+ survey respondents.

Solutions architects are among the most in-demand job roles right now. We wrote more about in-demand jobs here. These professionals design, deploy and support often complex cloud infrastructure, and given the need for professionals with these skills, it’s not surprising to see a certification like this landing toward the top of our list.

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional validates an individual’s ability in this area. AWS recommends two or more years of hands-on experience and familiarity with a scripting language, Windows, Linux, and many AWS services. Earning this certification requires professionals pass the current exam (SAP-C01). Changes to the exam are coming in November 2022 to align with the AWS Well-Architected Framework more closely. The exam costs $300 USD.

ISACA’s Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certification has made appearances on this list several times, holding the number two rank in 2015. In the years that followed, it’s kept a presence on the top-paying list at varying positions.

Last year, CISM ranked number six but climbed to the second position given the nearly 9% hike in salary reported by these professionals.

CISM sustains its presence this year for good reason. Cybersecurity continues to remain a top priority for organizations who must protect sensitive data from ceaseless threat actors. This certification signals to organizations and industry peers that a professional can lead security teams and efforts effectively.

CISM validates the ability to manage, design and assess an enterprise’s information security. It proves expertise in these domains: information security governance, information security risk management, information security program, and incident management.

To earn this certification, professionals must first have five years of professional work experience in the required domains before they can sit the exam, which costs $575 USD for ISACA members and $760 USD for non-members.

Ranking among the top again this year is the Google Cloud - Professional Cloud Architect, a credential that validates a professional’s ability to design cloud architecture with compliance and security in mind.

This credential also validates the ability to manage implementation, provision infrastructure, improve processes and more. However, to earn this certification, it’s recommended professionals have at least three years of experience before sitting the exam, with at least one designing and managing solutions in Google Cloud.

There is a $200 exam fee, and professionals have two hours to complete the exam. The certification lasts for two years before professionals must recertify.

Earning the CISSP certification has been compared to earning a master’s degree in IT security, as it proves professionals have what it takes to effectively design, implement, and manage a cybersecurity program.

This certification ranks slightly higher this year — it was number five last year — with a nearly 5% gain in salary.

The CISSP exam is based around eight domains in information security:

Security and Risk Management
Asset Security
Security Architecture and Engineering
Communication and Network Security
Identity and Access Management (IAM)
Security Assessment and Testing
Security Operations
Software Development Security
To achieve this certification, candidates also need at least five years of paid, relevant work experience in two or more of the CISSP domains.

If you lack the necessary experience, you can still take the certification exam and become an Associate of (ISC)2 if you pass. Then, you’ll have up to six years to obtain the required experience to earn your CISSP. The exam is $749 USD (up from $699 last year).

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate serves as a prerequisite for the professional-level certification currently in the number one position of this list.

This certification serves as a credible validation of cloud architects with hands-on professional experience designing fault-tolerant, cost-efficient systems on AWS.

Those who hope to sit this exam should have strong familiarity with the AWS Well-Architected Framework, and it helps to know the basics of programming, though AWS says deep coding experience isn’t required.

To achieve this certification, candidates must pass the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate (SAA-C03) exam. As mentioned, AWS recommends a year of hands-on experience designing systems on its platform before taking this exam.

The exam costs $150 USD. Professionals have 130 minutes to complete the 65-question exam.

The AWS Certified Security – Specialty certification validates the ability to secure data in the AWS cloud and successfully navigate complex security challenges.

AWS recommends professionals who want to pursue this certification have at least five years of experience in an IT security role, with two years of working knowledge securing AWS workloads. What’s more, those professionals should have strong familiarity with AWS security services, logging and monitoring strategies, cloud security threat models, security operations and risks, and more.

To earn the certification, professionals must pass the exam. The SCS-C01 exam costs $300 USD. It’s 65 questions and professionals have 170 minutes to complete it.

Projects live and die by how they’re managed, which is why skilled project managers are critical to any organization. They help define, organize, and manage projects from start to finish.

The Project Management Institute (PMI®) Project Management Professional (PMP) is one of the most highly regarded certifications of its kind, and it continues to show up on this list year after year.

It provides employers and customers with a level of assurance that a project manager has both experience and knowledge.

To earn the PMP, candidates must meet the Institute’s requirements. Candidates must have a four-year degree, three years of experience leading projects, and 35 hours of project management education or a CAPM® Certification.

Microsoft recommends these professionals have experience in Azure administration and development, DevOps, networking, virtualization, security, governance and more.

The Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification replaces its prerequisite on this year’s list as the nineth highest paying IT certification. Last year, the associate-level certification reportedly earned architects $121,420, ranking twelfth on the 2021 list.

To earn this certification, professionals must achieve a prerequisite certification — like the associate level mentioned earlier — and pass the AZ-305 exam, which costs $165 USD.

The Cloud Digital Leader (CDL) certification was released in 2021 as a foundational-level certification that validates a professional’s knowledge of the Google Cloud Platform, its services, and capabilities in supporting an organization’s cloud initiatives.

  1. É foda levar a sério essas listas quando botam salário médio de alguém com AWS CP ou Google CDL ganhando mais de 100k dólares. Claramente não são essas certificações as responsáveis por esse salário.

    1. O que acontece geralmente Cassio é que o cara no nível Expert também tem as certificações de associate e outras mais básicas, ai fura bem a pesquisa, por exemplo um AWS associate nunca irá ganhar mais que um CCNP, mas é uma boa para entender a tendência do mercado, tipo dos profissionais certificados lá a maioria tem certificações de Cloud, antigamente tinha muito MCSA, CCNA e certificações de vendors menores, agora cloud/security ta dominando o mercado, abraços.

    2. Lembrando que o salario lá é anualizado, não é 100k por mês não, se é o que o Cassio pensou. Abraços
