no, because if it were, than it would be discrimination to require you to have certain degrees or certificates for certain jobs.

No, they are looking for a particular skill. Some jobs require lifting, certain levels of education, years of experience, etc. Not everyone is qualified for every position-it is not discrimination.

No more so than requiring a certain typing speed.
