It's normal to have work experience in more than one profession, and Express Entry accepts that.
The Federal Skilled Worker Program, however, requires at least one year of work experience in a single profession (NOC).

Yes, you can.
But to be eligible for the Federal Skilled Worker Program, you need at least one year in one single profession (NOC).
For the Federal Skilled Worker Program eligibility, you need to have at least one year of work experience in only one profession - the one you are applying for.
If you have that full year (or 1560 hours) in one profession (must be NOC type 0, A or B), only then you can start adding experience in other professions (including NOCs C and D), to improve your CRS Score.
For Canadian Experience Class eligibility, you need at least one year of work experience in Canada, on NOCs 0, A or B. And it can be on different NOCs.
That one year of work experience in Canada (along with other factors) will make you eligible for CEC. Now, for the score, you can add other work experiences, including in your home country, or NOC types C and D.
This topic can be confusing, but the key thing here is to separate eligibility from CRS score.
They are two different things, and independent in this case. Eligibility for FSW requires 1 year in one single NOC. But CRS score considers any work experience, independent of NOC.
