No, it doesn't -- for the simple reason that there is no
"STC proposal." And even in informal discussions with
colleagues, the closest I've heard is "education or
equivalent experience." IMO it'd be totally unrealistic
to require a specific level of education.
Now let's discuss whether we should test for the ability
to use "it's" correctly. ;-)
