neutral  juliebarba: I would understand that differently - as a manual that you learn from, not a list of courses which I presume this is (with context available...)

neutral  Tony M: Could be, certainly; but i've also come across it where it simply meant 'a listing of available (in-house) training courses' (i.e. no real 'directory' aspect)

  -> Hi Tony. Your take on it is what I understand too - a list of courses that is (in-house or out)

training course brochures


Explanation:
I think you need to add the word "course" to be 100% clear.

NB Catalogue is sometimes used to mean "array". It doesn't always mean something tangible.
