He has over 40 years of experience in the areas of Licensing, Project Management, Engineering, and Compliance.

“We’re very pleased to have someone with Scott’s industry experience join our OLC team,” said Ted Enos, Certrec President. “I have known Scott for many years and I am excited to have his energy and expertise on our talented team. He helps round out our professional team with his licensing and new plant experience.”

In his role as Licensing Manager for STP Unit 1&2, Scott led the effort for the Licensing of the Special Treatment Exemptions that directly led to the development of the 50.69 Rule. He also led the effort that resulted in the first application of Risk Informed Technical Specifications.

“This is a critical time in the nuclear industry. We are excited to have Scott Head join the Certrec team. His licensing expertise and leadership will greatly assist our clients.” – Ted Enos, President of Certrec.

I have always regarded Certrec as a premier leader in providing regulatory services and support. I have worked with Certrec since the 90’s and continue to be impressed with their people, professionalism, and support of the nuclear industry.”
