I've been spell-checking a company's course catalogue for business online courses and one of its sections is titled "generic courses", the courses in this section are ones that are relevant for all employees regardless of their specific job roles. I initially thought that "generic" wouldn't be the right word here but then I did some googling and came across the website of the University of Oregon, which also lists "generic courses".
I still feel insecure about using the word "generic" in regard to courses. Generic = something that has no unique features. Wouldn't any course that has a specific topic have unique features? In which cases would you call a course "generic" and what word would you choose to describe courses that contain useful information for all employees as opposed to specialized knowledge that's relevant only for people in specific fields?
