Are you referring to BluePrint and Associated courses?  Sometimes people refer to BluePrint as a Parent course and Associated as a child course.  If this is what you are talking about it can be done when you create courses with a csv upload or API.  I believe the BluePrint course would have to be initially set up in Setting by clicking the BluePrint checkbox, but then there is a field in the Courses csv file for blueprint_course_id.  Having the BluePrint (parent) course listed here would set up that relationship.
