    Are you asking if it would qualify you for a job? If so, I think that would depend entirely on the job description and the expectations of the employer.

    TBH probably not as they would most likely want to use whatever program you use or perhaps watch you use it so they know you did not lie or fake it.

    This is definitely NOT acceptable.
    Everyone knows that any Indian tech support person types much faster than that.

    You have to do a lot better than that. You need to be near an average of 150 WPM. Only then you may have a chance in working on a tech-support call center somewhere.

    I... honestly can't imagine that a certificate would be good for any job you would want to be applying for. Just include your wpm and typing accuracy according to what website in your resume

    Outside of a tech-support or programming position, no one is going to care about your WPM. And if they care enough to want test scores, they're going to test you themselves.
    That, and 20 WPM barely qualifies you to use a cash register.
