I sort of caught up with a mixture of some very good MOOCs:

- improving your statistical inferences by Eindhoven University of Technology is fantastic
- inferential statistics by University of Amsterdam is great
- statistical inference by John Hopkins is also great

And working through my own statistical problems by asking people on stats.stackexchange and other forums.

Coursera has a class on statistical inference: https://www.coursera.org/learn/statistical-inference

Also, I highly recommend the book Doing Bayesian Analysis (it has four puppies on the cover).

In that case take a course on statistical Inference https://www.coursera.org/learn/statistical-inference and an introductory course on Database management https://www.coursera.org/learn/database-management after learning about SQL go to hackerank and solve their SQL problems to have a good grasp on effectively using SQL to fetch the data you want from database. Consider learning a programming language also python highly recommended.

I think that's a fair thing to learn - I would probably suggest breaking it down into smaller components instead of just taking an umbrella course like this (alternatively, if you have money and time to spare, this is probably going to be a solid intro - but I think you need to take it a few steps further.)

- Experimental/Study Design/Hypothesis testing

- Statistical Sampling

Don't know a good moog for this one sorry, although I always recommend the GOAT statistical course/books:

Introduction to Statistical Learning/Elements of Statistical Learning

https://lagunita.stanford.edu/courses/HumanitiesSciences/StatLearning/Winter2016/about

- Statistical Inference

https://www.coursera.org/learn/statistical-inference

- Causal Inference

I think a lot this is covered in the following specialization:
