I was researching this subject for some time and there wasn’t enough data in the past to come up with an average salary range for (USA) hyperbaric technologists, but today with the extreme growth of the industry there are a couple of websites that offer some pretty interesting numbers.
According to Salary.com; The median expected salary for a typical Hyperbaric Technician in the United States is $42,873. This basic market pricing report was prepared using our Certified Compensation Professionals’ analysis of survey data collected from thousands of HR departments at employers of all sizes, industries and geographies.
Payscale.com states that the going rate is $31,000 to $41,000 per year based on an hourly rate. I’m sure not very many agree with some of the numbers because it should be based on the number of years in the field, rate of living per state, amount of professional training among other factors. Interestingly enough Payscale.com also has a chart that shows number of years experience;
It shows that 73% of HBO technicians have between 1 and 4 years experience,
14% have 5 to 9 years experience, and
10% have less than a years experience
Salaryexpert.com has a good graph (CLICK FOR GRAPH) as well and shows an average of $40,000 to $45,000. This site also allows you to put in the rate of living (State), years of experience etc… Overall, it is still all over the place and there is no accounting for EMT, DMT, RN, CNA, Paramedic, Etc. What do you think?
