Practical Statistics for UX and customer research course is offered by the legendary Jeff Sauro under whom I had the good fortune to take an in-person 3 day workshop back in 2010.

There is also a book that serves as a great reference РQuantifying the User Experience: Practical Statistics for User Research 2nd Edition
