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

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

Coursera has a class on 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 and an introductory course on 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

  • Statistical Inference

  • Causal Inference

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

Basic Statistics

Introduction to Probability

Introduction to Linear Models and Matrix Algebra

Intro to Descriptive Statistics

Intro to Inferential Statistics

Mathematics for Computer Science

An Intuitive Introduction to Probability
