The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) Bright Track online courses are free for key staff at institutions that have an agreement with the CDSS to operate the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). ‘Key staff’ for the purposes of training is defined by the CDSS as an institution’s authorized representative, program contact, or their designee. The authorized representative is responsible for the full oversight of the CACFP and the program contact manages the day-to-day CACFP operations. Designees include employees at an independent center or sponsoring organization with CACFP duties (e.g., menu planners, monitors, fiscal staff).

Family child care home providers, staff at sponsored centers, vendors, and others who do not meet the definition of ‘key staff’ can:

  • Contact their sponsoring organization (if applicable) about training options and/or visit the CDSS CACFP Training web page for a list of free and low-cost training opportunities.
  • Access Bright Track online courses on the Brighton Child Nutrition Training website and receive a 25% discount on the cost of courses by entering 25% in the Apply Coupon field during checkout.
