Resume Paul Knörr

A small introduction

Paul is an SSI Advanced Open Water Instructor and also the founder of the All Stars Diving Foundation. As a law enforcement officer of the National Police in the Netherlands, Paul founded the foundation with the help of the board as a result of a long personal battle against post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that took a positive turn through diving. After much thought and a lot of research into similar initiatives in America (Ministry of Veterans), the conviction has arisen that diving therapy works, helps and is possible in the Netherlands and everywhere in the world.

The road to Scuba Instructor

In 2014 Paul obtained his Open Water Diver certificate in Croatia. After that Paul didn’t dive for several years and in 2017 he started diving again. Paul was able to further develop himself in the field of diving. Paul subsequently obtained his SSI Divemaster certification in 2020, his SSI Open Water Instructor certification in 2021 at Serenad Diving Center, trained by SSI Instructor Trainer Adem Gürsoy and his Classified Diving Instructor certification in 2022 at BlackFish Dive Center, trained by SSI Assistant Instructor Trainer Levent Atil.
