Frank Clavel started his career in the security field. He worked as a security guard and municipal public security officer for five years. He was part of an infantry regiment for the Canadian Armed Forces for five years. He is now in his 20th year of experience in the field of law enforcement. Frank has developed many competencies directly linked to navigation and security during his career. Here are some examples.

- He has acquired competencies on cartography, the use of a GPS and weapons handling in his five years of infantry experience in the military.
- Frank has taken many nautical courses with the Quebec Maritime Institute, the Canadian Lifesaving Society and the Canadian Power Squadron.
- From 1999 to 2003, Frank worked in law enforcement, search and rescue and first responder in the nautical field. He has developed a vast array of knowledge in marine law enforcement along with training in search and rescue and first responder. He also acquired training in the use of the nautical GPS. Frank also trained members of his team on power boat handling and search and rescue.
