The dictionary states that "Anfänger(-in)" has two genders, it will only depend on of whom you are talking about. Therefore you use "die Anfängerin" (for a female beginner) and "der Anfänger" (for a male beginner). If you want to refer in general terms you would use the masculine version: "Kurs für Anfänger".
