More specifically, the requirements for quality raters are a four-year college degree (BA/BS or equivalent) or four years relevant work experience (so a college degree is not necessarily required but desired).

In addition to fluency in the language, a deep understanding of the culture is required. Both the bilingual and English-only jobs require the applicant have a valid U.S. work authorization and that the work be performed in the United States. They must be able to work 10-30 hours a week and have a secure, private high speed Internet connection.
