Software tester with mechanical background

Hi just wanted to check if I can apply in express entry program with bachelors in Mechanical engineering. I am currently working as software tester. I want to apply under :2283 - Information systems testing technicians and it clearly says below that computer background is require. Can someone please tell if CIC is really serious about it and can this factor impact my case in any negative way ?

Employment requirements
