Lifeguard training is offered early in the year at Westgate Indoor Pool. It is a two-week class, which gives the participants at the completion of the class the knowledge to be an American Red Cross Certified Lifeguard. This course allows the participants to become a lifeguard at the city pools and Water World. This course also is valid at any pool that accepts American Red Cross Certification.
The class is $300, which includes the class text. Fee waivers are available for those individuals who are interested in working for the City of Dothan in the summer. The minimum age to complete the class is 15 years of age but you will need to be 16 years of age at the time of application to work for the city.
