I don't think you can create a table and insert into it at the same time - unless its a recent feature I haven't used.

The following should work to create you a temp table with the results in it:

SELECT distinct(Description)
INTO #temp_courses
FROM [Training].[dbo].[masCourse]

Open in new window

If you already have the table, try this.
INSERT temp_Courses
SELECT distinct Description FROM [Training].[dbo].[masCourse];

Open in new window

If you don't have the table, you can try SELECT INTO and create new table
 SELECT distinct Description
   INTO temp_courses
   FROM FROM [Training].[dbo].[masCourse]

Open in new window
