Hey :) I have 29 years of Microsoft Experience including as a Government and Local Government Teacher and as an Administrator from 1995 I think (or 1994) can I please obtain certification for all of my Microsoft experience including older Microsoft versions eg Windows 3.1+, Word 2+, Excel 1+, Powerpoint, Access, Outlook Business + Microsoft 365, Azure etc. I have taught 100's of people. I have even taught at 16 years young managing a Microsoft Training Courses Reseller for Windows 3.1, Word 2.0, Excel 1.0, Access Database, PowerPoint etc from 1994/95 (I have written proof of this, I even taught the Office Junior!) and my experience includes all versions of Microsoft - even including Microsoft Vista and the newer versions Microsoft Azure, Office365 etc. I have also taught for mainstream Government which included Cyber Security, Networking, Administrator, Website Administrator, Mobile Device Assets and Asset Maintenance, Outlook Admin (Active Directory), Desktop Support, Server Maintenance, Office Projects etc (and that was for at least 4 Government establishments in my building). I also once built 40+ laptops all at the same time including the startup encryption and startup build. This is just for starters! And I have taught at a Local Library but was approved by the Local Government and had to apply and be accepted for the position. Plus many more teaching opportunities have happened. Thus I was hoping someone can please assist me in my endeavour to become a Microsoft Certified Engineer? Would it be possible to do some exams or send some proof of my work or even attend at Microsoft to demonstrate my skills in order to obtain something like a mini Lifetime Achievement Certification Award in redspect of services on behalf of Microsoft (small prayer involved now) - as I've been working on Microsoft since 16 years for 29 years? Thank you so much for your assistance in advance, Jody x

    Hello Jody,

    the list of certifications you can achieve are available here on Learn: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/certifications/

    Each will require one or more exams, and all have a lifecycle. There's currently no certifications for older versions of technology.

    Any certification question you might have is probably best handled on this dedicated forum:
