Any licenses you hold that are necessary or valuable in the field you are seeking should be listed. Be selective, though. Only list certificates and licenses that are relevant to the new position. Mentioning a real estate license when you want to be a purchasing agent for a tool manufacturer would not add to your qualifications and might cause the employer to wonder whether your preferred career was selling real estate or purchasing.
