Also, the SOA has the application of statistical techniques module that only costs $200. Granted, doesn't cover all of those topics but gives a good start.

Some free materials to get you started:
R For Data Science
Intro to Statistical Learning
Forecasting (good for time series which is useful but not included in the SOA program)
Youtube Videos on Bayesian Analysis (goes through "Statistical Rethinking" book)
Thanks, I appreciate you compiling those resources. I've been digging up whatever I can on lynda and youtube.
