    If so

    Is this sentence OK? Thank you.

    I am wondering if you have information on the Training Course for next year? If so, could you send the information to us.

    Re: If so

    Just calling it "the Training Course" seems odd. If there is only one, there is no need to capitalize it.
    I suggest adding a "please." If so, could you please send it to us. (You don't need to repeat "information.")
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    ...
    Could you explain more about that?
    I am curious to know why capitalization is involved in this.

    Re: If so

    On its own "training course" is not a proper noun so it does not need to be capitalised. If the title of the course is, for example, "Computer Training Course for New Employees" then all those words should be capitalised. However, if you are simply referring to a training course and both you and the recipient of the message know which course you are talking about, then you just say "Please send me details of next year's training course".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
