Let's see. If we discount Robin's 1960s stories, we still have from 1940 to 1956 (BATMAN #102 was the last Golden Age story as accepted by Overstreet and comic book historians) and from 1976 to 1986 for the Earth-2 Robin adventures. That gives him 26 years of crime fighting experience. And I would surely give him at least 4 years for his active JSA membership in the 1960s and pre-1976. Also there was no sliding time scale pre-Crisis. That's a post-Zero Hour device. So 30 years is pretty accurate.
