  • No, the experience is not mandatory. You can take the exam without accrediting any experience at all. The reason that the exam description recommends a certain amount of experience is because this experience will help you to achieve the level of knowledge required for the exam. But it is not enforced in any way, you can just go ahead and take the exam if you think that your knowledge is enough to satisfy the "skill measured" for this exam.
